LEARN/East Lyme Collaborative 18-21 Program

 The Post High School Transition Center is a collaboration between LEARN Student Support Services and East Lyme Public Schools to create local and regional slots for students 18-21 in a structured and customized program.

 This program is designed for young adults that have completed high school requirements for graduation, but need additional programming to prepare for transition into adult life. The community based program provides a curriculum tailored to these moderately to severely disabled students and seeks to engage the participants by meaningful and hands on activities that are consistent with their ability level. Individuals will develop skills in the areas of career and life management. Components of the program include community based life skill instruction, work settings, and social skill instruction. The amount of time each student may spend in any setting will be determined by his or her needs.

Referrals to the 18-21 program:

Regional students should ideally have at least 2 years of eligibility remaining at the time of referral. Regional slot considerations may only be made by a school district representative to LEARN Student Support Services.

East Lyme students may be referred by East Lyme Public Schools.

Parents seeking referral information should contact their local special education representative.
