Students with disabilities in Yakima

On April 12th, community stakeholders interested in transition to adulthood supports and services for students with disabilities gathered at Children’s Village. We had great participation from:

-Local school districts

-ESD 105

-Children’s Village

-Developmental Disabilities Administration

-Division of Vocational Rehabilitation

-PAVE

-Office of the Education Ombuds

-Yakima County

-Parents

 

The group discussed what’s going well, and also what the needs are in Yakima County for students with disabilities transitioning to adulthood.  This group will participate in an Interagency Transition Network training in late August, and continue its work around improving outcomes for transition age youth with disabilities in Yakima County!
