Worcester Public Schools Transition Program
The Worcester Public Schools (WPS) Transition program provides necessary training to 18-22-year-old students with a wide range of challenges (including but not limited to: Autism spectrum, Developmental delays, Intellectual challenges, Behavior and Emotional challenges, Cognitive challenges, Medical challenges, etc.).
The goal of the program is to encourage and promote the empowerment of people with these significant challenges so that each may pursue their highest possible degree of personal well-being and independence. WPS Programs encourage and prepare students to be life-long learners, promote self-sufficiency of individuals with disabilities, and enhance personal choice. Goals also include preparation for employment in the community.
We are grateful to our 33 community partners who provide the settings for the young adults in our program to learn the necessary skills to be engaged citizens in their community. We also hope that the sites and other businesses in the community see the potential of these young adults and consider them as potential employees!
