Secondary Transition Programs

Student interacting with senior citizenPreparing students with disabilities to become successful workers requires hands-on experiences beyond what is offered in a traditional school setting.

Supports are provided to students through job training services. In addition, IU13 offers a variety of transition supports and resources for families and schools.

Work Immersion Programs

IU13’s Work Immersion Programs focus on helping young adults with disabilities make a successful transition from school to productive adult life. This unique one-year immersion program serves students with disabilities who are in their last year of high school. With the goal of competitive employment, each student receives classroom instruction and hands-on experience through internships. Through their work immersion experiences, students also develop employability, social, and independent living skills.
