The Alabama Department of Rehabilitation Services and its partners have had a busy summer conducting transition programs at colleges throughout the state to help students prepare for life after high school.

These programs have provided hands-on lessons designed to develop and improve independent living skills for people with disabilities. The agenda differed from school to school, with topics ranging from time management, financial management, self-advocacy, and vocational rehabilitation to dining etiquette, bullying, note taking, problem solving, social skills, and interviewing techniques.
