“Warren-Washington-Albany ARC (WWAARC) and The Arc Lexington have created a partnership to expand the Transitions program into the Capital Region. WWAARC offers employment supports to Transitions students who attend the Transitions program in Albany. These supports include internships, career counseling, on-the-job coaching services, job training and more.
Transitions, launched in 2015, is a post-secondary program that supports teens and young adults with autism spectrum disorders and other learning differences with college, career and independent life.
Transitions focuses on building academic skills, life skills and general independence for high school graduates and young adults with learning differences. Its evidence-based curriculum covers social skills, health and wellness, independent life, self-management, and self-advocacy and leadership – all essential skills that, once mastered, will steer the students toward success in college, the workplace and living on their own.
The program also offers direct support to students who are enrolled in college and those who are employed.
