Do you know a 17-21 year old with special needs who could use help preparing for life after high school?

The High Desert Educational Service District’s Transition Network offers many resources to assist in preparing Central Oregon students with intellectual and developmental disabilities to lead independent and productive lives after high school.

TN’s website has helpful information for students, families and educators including listings of community partners that provide services such as vocational rehabilitation, support services, developmental disability programs, family advocacy and employment services. The site also has transition planning guides, tips, assessments and much more.

You can also follow HDESD Transition Network on FacebookInstagram and Twitter. For more information about transition support for students with special needs in Sisters School District, contact Josh Nordell at josh.nordell@sisters.k12.or.us.
