Arc Greater Twin Cities Transition-to-Work program is based on models and concepts that are well recognized as best practices for transition. The program is designed to ensure that parents, guardians, and self-advocates have information, skills, and tools to develop transition plans that will result in community-based jobs. The program is designed to increase parent and student involvement in the IEP meetings by helping them understand the transition planning process and identifying essential skills for employment and community living. Person Centered Planning is another tool to help increase parental involvement by bringing together family members to help develop a plan and build networks for support. This plan can direct development of the transition IEP and other supports needed for successful transition from school to community living.
