Our program emphasizes collaborative relationships between school, student, family/natural support, and community agency that is driven by student-directed goal setting for positive student outcomes. Checkout the YAP Overview presentation.
Daily specialized instruction is focused on the four areas of transition planning: employment, post-secondary education/training, adult living and community participation. Instruction is centered on meeting the needs of each student as we prepare all students for life after school.
As students look to transition beyond school, the Young Adult Program works to streamline connections to adult agencies that will bridge long-term support for our students. Our program has partnerships with Michigan Rehabilitation Services, Bureau of Services for Blind Persons, Kalamazoo Community Mental Health and Substance Abuses Services, and Disability Network as well as many others.
