The West San Gabriel Valley SELPA in collaboration with Alhambra Unified School District and the East Lost Angeles Regional Center (ELARC) hosted an adult transition fair on Nov. 15, 2014. The fair, Preparing for a Successful Post-High School Transition, was targeted to students, aged 18 to 21 years old, and their families. The fair showcased local Regional Center vendors who provide a variety of programs, services, and supports available to students after high school/adult transition. In addition, informational seminars were held on topics such as Recent Policy Changes that Could Impact Transition and Employment Plans for Your Child and Regional Center Supporting Transition to Adult Life. The fair was well attended and families expressed their gratitude for the opportunity to gather and explore valuable resources and information.
