The Greene County Board of Developmental Disabilities Transition Team strive to help transition age students (ages 14-22) and families prepare for the changes that come as high school ends. The primary objective of the Transition Team is to identify students within Greene County that may qualify for our services. Once connected with services, the Transition Team can provide supports for students, families, teachers and members of the Individualized Education Program (IEP) team to collaborate and develop personalized transition plans based on the student’s preferences, interests, needs and strengths. As part of the person centered approach these supports could include experiential learning to assist in developing life skills that enable a student to achieve post-graduate goals and make all necessary connections to community agencies and /or services.
