Extended Transition - Project SEARCH
Preparing students with significant disabilities for success in integrated, competitive employment.


Project SEARCH is a nine-month transition-to-work internship program for people with disabilities. It is targeted for individuals whose goal is competitive employment. The program takes place in a business-led setting where total immersion in the workplace facilitates the teaching and learning process through hands-on training and the acquisition of employability and marketable work skills. Interns participate in three internships to explore a variety of career paths. The interns work throughout the year with a team that includes their family, an instructor, and local and state agencies to create an employment goal. The outcome of this one year program is competitive, integrated employment.
