Transition Services for Persons Who are Blind or Visually Impaired
The Division for Blind Services Transition Program assists young people who are blind or visually impaired to make an effective transition from secondary school to adult life and the world of work. The program prepares these young consumers who are at least 10 years old and under the age of 24 and who may have multiple disabilities to make informed decisions about their future goals. Consumers and their families are provided with:
- opportunities for career exploration
- opportunities to gain work experience while in high school
- feedback about the consumer's current academic, vocational, and independent living skills
- training in skills needed to achieve their goals and
- adaptive tools to achieve their goals.
