The Work and Transition Program is helping students with disabilities and their families think about their life after secondary school and identify long-range goals during the secondary school experience to ensure that students gain the skills and connections they need to achieve these goals.

Planning for the future is an investment in a child's well-being which we value in the Supported Learning Centre.
