Westbrook Transition Planning
The staff at Westbrook strive to help our students and their families achieve the most out of life, both during their time at Westbrook and they look to the future.
Transitioning into the adult world can present challenges for young people and Westbrook students often require unique programming and planning. Activities are based on the student’s individual needs, preferences, and interests. Staff works closely with school district personnel and parents to provide individual transition planning for students with the explicit goal of maximizing independence through supervised field work experiences and regular participation in community-based activities.
Adaptation, communication and real world experience are pillars of the academic experience that Westbrook provides. Since its inception, Westbrook has worked to develop strong partnerships in Westbury and the surrounding towns. Current and past internship options include but are not limited to:
