Transition Services

Transition to Adulthood

Our role is to provide support, information, and strategies regarding an individual’s transitional stages, particularly into adulthood, and offer strategies to cope with these challenges. 

Support for Parents

Our role is to support the family in understanding how the child/young person feels about their sensory loss and strategies/information to support the consumer. 

Resource Identification

Staff members are available to assist families in identifying community-based services and providing assistance in all facets of life to ensure youth can make successful transitions to community living.

Adaptive Technology

Adaptive technology training plans can be implemented to assist youth in enhancing computer skills. When working with the school districts, our team members work directly with the student, family, and educators to ensure that programming received through Outlook Enrichment compliments the student’s IEP plan.

Monthly Tech It Out sessions are also available for our youth and their family members to participate in. These sessions provide an avenue to gain information on the technology their student may be using. Sessions vary by topic but focus on accessibility features, new technology, and apps on the market.

Our Adaptive Technology Help Line is also available to assist your family with any technical questions at 531-365-5314. 

Independent Living Skills

Independent students and students from local 4 Plus Programs participate in our monthly virtual independent living series. Topics range from safe cooking to home organization. This is a mentor opportunity where youth may engage with adult members of our community living with vision loss to learn and discuss the many facets of daily living skillsets.  

Advocacy Skills Development

Outlook Enrichment offers a series called Advocacy 101. These trainings focus on educating the community on how to be a better advocate for themselves and education opportunities on essential issues such as transportation rights and responsibilities, understanding Social Security, and how to work effectively with DVR Counselors and College Students with Disabilities Services.

Social and Recreational

We offer several social and recreational youth activities throughout the year such as beep baseball, golf clinics, paddle boarding, and much more. We are very fortunate that our adaptive sports team is well-versed in vision loss and working with a variety of additional disabilities as well. Never fear that your family member will transition out of rec programs at Outlook Enrichment. As your youth become adults, they may move into our adult recreation program.  

IEP Teams

Our staff provides technical assistance and problem-solving with instructors and family members to evaluate your youth's needs. Our team can assist in understanding the IEP process, identify resources, and participate in team meetings at your request.
