The Transition House Program assists high school seniors with mild-to-moderate disabilities transition from the familiar environment of high school to employment and independent living.

The program in Birdsboro is offered to students with mild to moderate disabilities entering their last year of school, who will seek competitive employment in transition to adult life. Staff members, including a certified special education teacher and a community coordination specialist, work with students daily to:

  • develop skills necessary for vocational teamwork and communication,
  • learn socialization skills for job seeking, job retention, and community living,
  • practice financial and household management skills,
  • and develop self-advocacy skills.

The program provides hands-on learning opportunities to students who seek competitive employment after their last year of high school. Students participate in the program in two half-day sessions, from 8:00 a.m to 11:00 a.m. and 12:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. Students are transported to the program according to arrangements made by their school district, which include the use of public transportation when needed, a skill the Transition House Program emphasizes.
