Transition services prepare students with disabilities to move from school to post-school life. The student’s activities are based on his or her needs, preferences, and interests, and include the following areas:

  • instruction,
  • community experiences,
  • development of employment and other post-school adult living objectives,
  • acquisition of daily living skills (when appropriate), and
  • functional vocational evaluation.

Goodwill’s transition services department consists of three programs: Transition WORKS! Pittsburgh, Transition WORKS! Redstone Highland and UPMC Project Search. These programs provide employability and life skills training in both classroom and community environments.
