High School Transition

Transition Programs for Students with Disabilities

Atlantic Provinces Special Education Authority

The Atlantic Provinces Special Education Authority is an inter-provincial agency serving children with visual and hearing impairments in New Brunswick, Newfoundland, Nova Scotia and Prince Edward Island. It features two different transition programs, one for those with hearing impairments and one for visually impaired clients.

In the transition services for deaf/hard of hearing program, students and parents work together with a transition planning team to establish future goals in education, career, health, etc. The program helps clients establish links with potential employers, and advocate for adaptations and modifi- cations in post-secondary programs where needed.

The transitions for visually impaired/blind services program pairs student participants with a transition facilitator, beginning when the student is 16 years old. The facilitator helps the student work with a team including parents and agency representatives involved with the student (CNIB, for example), to investigate goals and options available after high school.
