Preparation for success in adulthood starts long before adulthood arrives.
Favarh's transition program teaches high school students living with developmental disabilities the employment, social and adaptive skills they will need to be successful after they leave their school system. Students 16 and older have the opportunity to volunteer or work in community businesses to gain valuable vocational experiences.
For students under age 21 who have completed all academic requirements for high school graduation, Favarh offers River Bend Transition Academy at Tunxis as well as being a Project Search at UConn Health provider offering a one-year internship for young adults with disability who are on a path towards independent, competitive employment.
Students age 14 to 21 can participate in Favarh’s extended school years services.
All educational, employment and community-based experiences are tailored to the personal choices, preferences and needs of our students, in conjunction with their IEP goals. Most of our participants are placed in our Transition Programs through their local school district.
