Making the transition from adolescence to adulthood is hard for anyone. When a student is visually impaired, that process can be even more difficult. KSSB's Transition Program can make this passage a little easier by providing quality instruction that is tailored to individual student goals and needs. We have reviewed all aspects of our current programming and are committed to improving and expanding our offerings for next year. KSSB's staff will work closely with the student's IEP team to create a transition action plan that is transparent, measurable, and designed to meet the student's defined needs. Students will be the primary driver of their own goals and progress. Students will be supported by the full array of KSSB's supports and services. Our trained vision professionals include Teachers of the Visually Impaired (TVIs), Certified Orientation and Mobility Specialists (COMS), Social Workers, Job Development Specialists, job coaches, and others. The program is not a respite program for parents or districts waiting for entry into adult services, but rather is designed as a one-year program that will be reviewed regularly and may be renewed upon mutual agreement between the IEP team and KSSB.
