Transition Services can provide a bridge between school life and working life for individuals with a developmental disability. The Arc of Somerset County will attend Individual Educational Plan (IEP) meetings and support the family and the Child Study team in efforts to implement transition plans, visit center-based programs and tour work sites. Time limited job sampling and assessments are available throughout the transition year and provide exposure to community work and culture. Skills can also be developed to support an individual's efforts to express personal interest. Once complete, job development services continue to foster resume creation, interview practice and general employability. After hire, job coaching services assist in acclimating individuals to the work environment and to monitor progress and personal preferences.
