Pre-Employment Transition

 

Proper preparation for employment will set employees up for success. To support this transition, PRIDE Industries offers a range of transition services focused on self-determination, employment preparation, and job placement. We offer group and individual services to help people successfully enter the workplace, with a special focus on each individual’s needs and interests.

 

Our collaboration includes:

  • Planning & coordination: Meetings with families, caregivers, schools, worksites, WorkAbility, Regional Centers and the Department of Rehabilitation.
  • Involvement: Attendance at Individual Education Plan (IEP) or Individual Transition Plan (ITP) meetings when appropriate. 
  • Engagement: Attendance at community transition events and fairs.
  • PRIDE-sponsored Transition Advisory Board: Community/parent semiannual advisory and planning meetings.
