Transition Services

Students with disabilities transitioning to a work environment face unique challenges. Overcoming these challenges requires a coordinated effort between students, families, school systems, and vocational rehabilitation systems.

PRIDE Industries’ transition services focus on self-determination, employment preparation and job placement. Our collaboration includes:

  • Planning & Coordination: Meetings with families, caregivers, schools, work sites, WorkAbility, Regional Centers and the Department of Rehabilitation.
  • Involvement: Attendance at Individual Education Plan (IEP) or Individual Transition Plan (ITP) meetings when appropriate.
  • Engagement: Attendance at community transition events and fairs.
  • PRIDE-sponsored Transition Advisory Board: community/parent semiannual advisory and planning meetings.

We offer a wide range of group and individual transition services that help people successfully enter the workplace, while focusing on their individual needs and interests.
