Transitioning to Adult Services

Graduation

As the parent or caregiver of a child who has medical complexities and special healthcare needs, you have been your child’s champion and advocate on his/her journey through the education system.

Now that your student is an adolescent, it is time to start thinking and planning for his/her future as he\she transitions from the education system into the adult world.

Our Transition Services
A team of professionals will help to develop a transition plan for program opportunities after graduation. The transition plan is based on individual needs and take into account preferences and interests. Consideration is given to long-range goals and specific objectives for employment, post-secondary training, education, independent living skills, and/or community involvement.
St. Vincent’s Special Needs Services Adult Day program with locations in Stratford and Norwalk is one option available to graduates.
