ETHS Transition House

  • The mission of the ETHS Transition House program is to facilitate the independent functioning and self determination of young adults ages 18-22 with disabilities through skill development, technology use and supportive participation in vocational, social, recreational and other community-based activities. The components of the Transition House program include:

    Collaborative Service Delivery Model
    Transition participants, parents, educational staff members, and agency personnel collectively develop and implement community-based support plans.

    Adult-Focused Curriculum
    In-depth instruction is provided to foster vocational, social, domestic, community involvement, personal living, and recreational skills.

    Peer Program
    An interactive peer program to facilitate interactions with age-appropriate peers.

    Linkages to Adult Service Providers
    Educational staff members work closely with community-based agencies to link participants with appropriate services.

    Transition Services
    The Transition program is designed to provide young adults ages 18 -22 with moderate to severe disabilities an opportunity to meet their IEP transition goals in a community-based setting. The program empowers participants through independent skill development and participation in vocational, social, recreational, and daily-living activities.

    Partnership Agreement
    The IEP for each participant in the Transition program is selected based on individual need, and is developed and monitored in a collaborative manner by the participant, the participant's family, the home district educational staff members, and the Transition program team.
