Transition

What do we do?

The Berrien RESA Transition team works closely with students, families, schools, businesses and community service agencies to navigate a student's transition to adulthood. The team assists students with disabilities and their educational planning team when developing transition plans, coordinating with community resources, and finding innovative ways to help students reach their goals for life after high school.

We are here for you!

  • Facilitate diverse programming opportunities for transition-age students (ages 16-26) with disabilities
  • Support local school districts with Work-Based Learning opportunities throughout Berrien County
  • Coordinate with community support services for students and adults with disabilities
  • Assist local school districts with Transition Planning and Individual Education Plan (IEP) compliance
