Transition Services

transition.jpgAIM offers services and programming for students ages 14-24 to help them transition from school to work or further education, and to live independent and self-directing lives.

A coordinated set of activities for each student promotes movement from school to post-school life. While in school, AIM provides assistance to students and parents/guardians for Committee on Special Education (CSE) meetings and Individualized Education Program (IEP) transition planning, and advocacy with school personnel is provided.

Vocational exploration and training are the cornerstones of AIM's programming for youth and young adults with disabilities. Participants explore and observe a variety of jobs and work settings, and they also receive job training and coaching.

Also, AIM teaches students skills that are necessary to independent living, and students participate in peer support groups, local social events, and activities that increase social awareness. 

AIM emphasizes education, knowledge and social awareness.

To help with student transition, AIM created a transition academy, a standalone environment dedicated to serving students, parents, and educators. It provides on-site training and social integration, and serves as a resource for parents and a place for educators to learn more about independent living and working with students with disabilities.
