The WorkAbility Staff works diligently to provide support for your student. We recognize that, as a parent, you would like to know about resources, agencies, and options available to your child as they transition from high school and beyond. It seems like just yesterday our students were playing in the schoolyard with their friends, and now they are quickly becoming independent young adults. WorkAbility helps make this transition a smooth one, that leads to successful employment, education, or training after high school. We do this by focusing on the students’ dreams and goals, then providing activities and support throughout the year.
Our staff also works very closely with school staff, businesses, and community agencies to provide a variety of opportunities to students. We assist teachers in writing transition plans that reflect the student and their family goals. Our staff collaborates with businesses to develop meaningful work opportunities. They also link students up with community agencies and educational training programs that match their goals.
Groups that meet regularly that have a commonality about them. They are parents of individuals who are all trying to deal with similar issues regarding their children. There are support groups for parents with children who have autism, speech delays, developmental delays, diabetes, and more. Ask your child’s doctor, teacher, or other staff to see if they know of any support groups located in your area. If not, see the links below for more information on groups with specific disabilities in common. There are local groups in your particular area, so be sure to look up information as it pertains to your needs in your area.
The Transition Partnership Program (TPP) is a statewide vocational education and work placement program. TPP provides secondary and post-secondary students with disabilities the tools and support necessary to effectively transition from school to competitive employment. TPP contacts are located throughout the state of California in local high schools and community colleges; however, not all school districts or community colleges have a TPP Program.
