Our goal for all special-needs students exiting Berkeley County Schools (BCS) is that they are well prepared for post-school life. Depending on the disability and the support services required in adult life, successful transition from high school to adult life may require that planning activities begin in elementary or middle school with students exploring their interests. Starting the process early prepares students with disabilities to think about what they want to be able to do in adult life. High school transition planning includes exploring post-secondary opportunities and employment options and may include connecting with the adult service agencies that may provide the student with services when he or she graduates or turn 21 years of age.
The I/DD Waiver Program provides services that instruct, train, support, supervise, and assist individuals who have intellectual disabilities and/or developmental disabilities in achieving the highest level of independence and self-sufficiency possible in their lives.
