Transition Planning

Del Sol School offers an adult transition program for students 18 -22 years of age with moderate to severe disabilities. Students in this program learn vocational skills to help them transition from the school setting to a work setting.

Transition from school to young adult life can be stressful, scary, challenging and more… but it can also be full of opportunities and possibilities for your loved one to engage in the life they have always wanted! Parents should work with their local regional center the Department of Developmental Services, and the Department of Rehabilitation to ensure their student will receive all the necessary services as an adult.
