Preparing for the Future
Helping students and their families prepare for the future through transition planning and vocational skill-building are core components of the services offered at Esperanza School.
Esperanza School works closely with students to help them develop the skills that will prepare them for life after graduation. In addition, we provide parents with vital information on issues like guardianship, Social Security, employment and adult services, including other services available through Esperanza, such as the Coleridge Adult Day Program.
Each student 14 years of age and older works towards long-range goals that are developed based on a vocational skills assessment, career interest survey and parent input. These goals are integrated into the student’s individualized education plan (IEP), and are pursued both in the classroom and in the community through integration outings.
