Residential School Transition Coordinators

Students at residential schools are entitled to remain at school until they complete their educational requirements or until the end of the school year in which they turn 21. Once students complete their schooling, the Office for Persons with Developmental Disabilities (OPWDD) is responsible for their adult services, and students can only remain at school until OPWDD offers appropriate adult services. OPWDD is committed to helping students at residential schools transition to adult life by ensuring needed supports are in place when students age out of school. Age out coordinators can help students and families learn about residential support options, as well as employment and other day supports. 

This website provides a listing of residential school transition coordinators by regions.
