Adult Transition Program
DNUSD offers an Adult Transition Program (ATP) for young adult students with disabilities aged 18-22 years of age. Eligibility for the program is determined through the IEP process. The program provides instruction and training in age-appropriate environments to help facilitate a seamless transition to adult life after public school, as per the Individuals with Disabilities Act (IDEA) 2004 Sec. 300.43 Transition Services.
ATP is a community-based program. The program is staffed by a licensed teacher, as well as instructional assistants. Designated Instructional Services (DIS), such as speech and language, behavior services, and physical therapy, are provided as indicated in each student’s IEP.
A person-centered approach is used to identify the strengths, needs, interests, and preferences of each individual student. Instructional domains include the following:
- Independent Living
- Connections to Adult Services
