Some Assembly Required (SOAR) Transition Skills Program - Senior
Rationale: Students often experience difficulties associated with career exploration and supports during their High-School years, having a diagnosable Learning Disability while searching for a career in which eliminates barriers can be difficult. The SOAR Senior program was designed to assist in the transition to either Post-Secondary Education or Career, while creating the opportunity to eliminate anxiety and confusion of picking a career, school, and what documentation is needed to access accommodations. The aim of this program is to help parents/guardians understand the process of Post-Secondary Education/Career, while allowing for the opportunity for students to feel excited and motivated to approach this new chapter.
Program Description: Designed specifically for students with Learning Disabilities and their parents, the Some Assembly Required Senior program is designed to help students in grades 11 and 12 transition from High School to either Post-Secondary Education or the Workplace, while providing parents/guardians the resources they need to support their students’ transition. Students will have the opportunity to set career specific goals, establish self-advocacy techniques, and the opportunity to obtain the skills and resources needed to successfully transition into their Post-Secondary career/education. Upon conclusion of the program, Students are required to prepare, submit, and present ‘Where Are They Going?’ Projects, which will be worked on throughout the program; to allow them to understand their career goals.
