Transition 18-21 Program

The Successful Transitions for Exceptional People program serves students aged 18-21 who have completed the majority of their high school credit requirements but plan to attend a special education program through their twenty-first year. Hockinson’s transition program focuses on increasing independence within employment and independent living environments. Classroom and community based instruction concentrates on proficiencies within daily living, community living, personal life, and functional academics. On-the-job training within community locations supports growth of independence of vocationally themed skills. Along with a Job Coach/Para educator, students plan and access recreation/leisure, public transportation, and job site visitations to learn about resources within their community. The overarching goal of the transition program is to bridge the transition from high school to post-secondary environments.
