College-Based Transition Program

Siena College in New York has a program for students with disabilities who are in post high school special education programs.

During the 2013 Commencement ceremony, Siena College presented Certificates of Completion to four students with disabilities who have finished the Siena College Transition Program. The Transition Program was developed in partnership with the North Colonie Central School District to help students ages 18-21 move into adulthood. Rather than remaining in high school special education classes, students from North Colonie participated in initiatives that supported their Individualized Education Plans in an age-appropriate setting. Each student had a college mentor who helped with assignments and reinforced appropriate socialization skills.
