Award Winning Adult Transitions Program
“The child that is actually left behind is the one who leaves school without preparation for transition.”
-Dr. Louis Fulton
This program was designed to empower postgraduate youth, aged 18-21, with the skills, goals, and choices they need for a productive life in their community. The curriculum for this program encompasses the management of three areas: personal, career, and life. Benway’s transition program achieves this through Community Based Instruction, vocational/shared time programs, resume building, job searching assistance, job sampling, and college and vocational assistance.
The Benway Adult Transitions program is equipped to serve students with mild/moderate cognitive impairment, Asperger’s syndrome, and multiple disabilities. Emotionally disturbed students, youth with attention-deficit difficulties, mild TBI, or physical limitations can all participate in our transitions program as well.
Additionally, Benway recently updated their classrooms with new furniture, Promethean Boards, flooring, and so much more. We were ready to welcome students back into the building in a new brighter school to lift their spirits and aid in their learning.
