Hello Students and Families,


Welcome to ATP!!!


GGUSD’S Adult Transition Program is a community-based program designed for individuals ages 18-22 with intellectual and developmental disabilities. Our school and staff provide students with work/community-based instruction that include proper work attire, social and personal behaviors required for employment, and overall independence to succeed in life. Through this curriculum, students gain confidence, make their own decisions, take the initiative, and obtain knowledge of their rights as individuals


ATP opportunities focus on the following LEARNING DOMAINS:

  • Social Skills
  • Communication Skills
  • Functional Academics
  • Vocational Skills
  • Daily Living Skills
  • Recreation/Leisure activities

Examples of DAILY learning opportunities that support our 6 LEARNING DOMAINS:

  • Volunteer Work and/or Job Placement
  • Accessing the local community (shopping, banking, library, etc.)
  • Household skills to encourage independent living
  • Getting around on public transit
  • Connections to community agencies that can help our students

Our ATP program encourages students to be as independent as possible in the community. The level of support each student receives is based on individual needs. Following the special education protocol, each student receives an Individualized Education Plan (IEP) and a transition plan (TP) that provides step-by-step procedures to become as independent as possible.

ATP students are legally adults but we encourage parent involvement in helping them complete their education. Collaboration as a team is important and appreciated for our students’ SUCCESS!

To an AMAZING year!
