About Us

The Transitional Learning Center (TLC) program is available for special needs students who have completed their High School requirements at age 18 and wish to continue working on transition and post-secondary goals.  Those attending TLC need support to continue their education in order to meet their transition goals outlined in their Individual Education Plan. 
The TLC program assesses students in the areas of Occupational Skills, Daily Living Skills and Social Skills. TLC utilizes the Practical Assessment Exploration System (PAES) lab to assess barriers and accommodations needed for employment. Students also receive lessons in the following curriculums: Life Centered Career Education (LCCE), Brigance Transition Skills, and Career Visions. These curriculums are the basis for community instruction and functional life skills.
Students participating in the TLC program will have opportunities to volunteer in a variety of settings, both out in the community and on campus in the TLC business, where they will experience on-the-job training in many areas, while also learning the city transportation system.

Once each student participating in our program successfully completes their transition goals, or turns age 22, they will leave the program with a completed individualized work portfolio which can be utilized by the Regional Center and possibly the Department of Rehabilitation (DOR) in order to support the students transition seamlessly from the school system to community resources.
