Beacon Transitions - a residential transitions program, for young adults 18-26 that present with learning differences and need extra guidance on their pathway to independence.

Brief Overview

At Beacon Transitions we partner with young adults to develop an individualized plan towards independent living. We do so through individualized assessment, goal development, planning, and coaching, over the course of our 4 levels of service.

Our four levels of service include:

-Main program, in an intentional community living setting
-On site apartment living with supports
-Offsite apartment living with case management
-Life/Work coaching and independent living support

We meet the student where they are in their abilities and support them in building a stronger set of foundational skills so he/she can live on their own. We specialize in working with individuals who present learning differences, such as Asperger's, executive functioning disorder, pragmatic communication disorder, attention deficit disorder and nonverbal learning disorder.
