Youth Transitional Services

What are Youth Transitional Services?

Flexible Programming: Individualized, community based programming designed to meet the needs of each student and school district. Most programs are structured to service a student’s IEP and are directed by the IEP team through collaboration with Easter Seals staff.

Employment & Work Based Learning: Incorporates a combination of job shadows, unpaid work experiences through NHDOL STW program, as well as support throughout the job search, application and interview process, job placement / job carving, worksite instruction and assessment of performance.

Continuing Education: Includes in-school support, support with HiSET preparation, online education, extended learning opportunities and a focus on functional academics.

Adult Daily Living Skills: Encompasses a wide spectrum of community based experiences and activities to help students transition from adolescence and school based services to adult life. Our Program Coordinators can help students connect to a variety of adult services.

Social Health & Wellness: Involves coaching in the areas of social and interpersonal skills, community engagement, enrichment activities and healthy pursuits.  

What are the program options?

We offer Full-Day & Half-Day programs 5 days per week  as well as Single-Day & Partial-Day programs 1 to 4 days per week. Programs run Monday through Friday.

Here's Tristan

Tristan came to ESNH’s Residential & Educational Services several years ago as an angry teen who was prone to verbal outbursts and struggled to deal with a rough life as well as a variety of disabilities. Although the transition was rocky, Tristan continued to move forward with his education; going from a restricted residential situation, to a group home, and then, after three years, to more independent living where he is now responsible for doing his own cooking, cleaning, and laundry.
