Our Transition Program is not being offered this year.
This program is exclusive to the Frostig School and is designed for all students in high school, starting in the 9th grade. The objectives of the program are to help our students and their parents begin planning ahead for the future, anticipating outcomes for our students at the end of their senior year and determining the steps necessary to ensure those plans are achieved.
Our Transition Program focuses on these four areas:
- Career awareness and development of employment skills
- Self awareness and self advocacy
- Independent living skills
- Planning for post-secondary placement, education and training
It also prepares our students to assume responsibility for their educational decisions as they reach the age of majority (18 years of age). To that end, Frostig also works to develop “interagency cooperative planning” with various providers, including the Department of Rehabilitation and Regional Centers.
Far beyond developing an Individual Transition Plan (ITP) for students who have an IEP, five semesters of course work are required starting in the 9th grade (half semester each in 9th and 10th grade and two full semesters each in 11th and 12th grade). It should be pointed out the transition program is not a college-preparatory or job placement program or a functional living skills program. Both parents and students must be active and equal participants with Frostig.
