The Adult Years Vocational Program (AYVP) is a transition program that addresses the vocational and transition needs of adult students between the ages of 18-21 with developmental disabilities such as intellectual disabilities, autism, and other health impairments.
These students have completed their high school credits but need additional transition services in order to function academically, behaviorally, and/or independently beyond high school.
Students will also be provided transition supports in areas such as transportation, housing, respite and daily living services in collaboration with their family and community agencies.
