  • 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
    • Employment/Vocational 
    • Recreation/Leisure
    • Social
    • Self-determination/Self-advocacy
