Transition Services

Maryland

State Policies & Initiatives: 
Training/Capacity Building

“The Maryland School for the Blind’s Transition program assists students and their families as they prepare to leave school and move to:

  • Post-secondary education
  • Vocational training
  • Integrated employment (including supported employment)
  • Continuing education
  • Adult services
  • Independent living
  • Community participation

As students complete their educational entitlement programs, they enter the adult service world of eligibility, where individuals may be deemed eligible for services based on agency guidelines and funding availability.  Establishing linkages with adult funding agencies such as the Developmental Disabilities Administrations (DDA) and the Division of Rehabilitation Services (DORS) is an integral part of transitioning and learning to navigate the adult service world.”
