High School Transition
Transition Programs for Students with Disabilities
Skills for Transition Project
The Skills for Transition Project is organized by Bloorview MacMillan’s
Community Based Services department, and aims to help students
develop independence skills needed for the transition from high school
to post-secondary. Students work with a Transitional Life Skills coach
on goals set out by the student. Some goals to work on could include
cooking, finding part-time or volunteer work, finding recreational opportunities,
budgeting, housing and transportation.
The program is available to high school students from grade 9 to OAC,
who have demonstrated the ability to set goals and be motivated to
achieve them. Students must agree to adhere to the commitment guidelines
set out in the project contract.
