The transition from high school to an adult day training program takes place during the last year the student attends Brevard Public Schools. At least 6 months before the student ages out of or leaves Brevard Public Schools, the student's teacher, parent/guardian, student and representatives from selected day programs will attend an IEP/Transition meeting to discuss options and the progression of the transition. Other district and agency personnel may attend as well.
During the transition meeting, a transition plan may be created to promote a smooth transition to the selected program. The school system and the selected agency will work together to slowly transition the student into the new program. The IEP Transition team will decide what supports are necessary to ensure a smooth transition. Based on the decision of the IEP team, Brevard Public Schools may provide transportation to the program, support personnel, and funding for the program for a set period of time, usually 2-6 weeks before the student ages out of Brevard Public Schools. Beginning on the student's 22nd birthday, the family assumes responsibility for transportation and funding. Funding may be private pay or through the Med-Waiver Program if applicable.
The parent and student are encouraged to tour programs of interest, to assist them in making the best decision for the student, before the transition meeting. Please feel free to use the Adult Day Training Programs list below to set up tours.
