Transition Support

Berrien RESA assists students with disabilities as they transition from high school to post-secondary education or the workforce. Our goal is to ensure a smooth and successful transition for each student and help them reach their goals for life after school.Ways in which we help: 

  • Facilitate diverse programming opportunities for transition-age students (ages 16-26) with disabilities
  • Support local school districts with Work-Based Learning opportunities throughout Berrien County
  • Coordinate with community support services for students and adults with disabilities
  • Assist local school districts with Transition Planning and Individual Education Plan (IEP) compliance
