LCSS has been providing Person-Centered Transition Services since 2001.  Our consultants support schools to provide an individualized transition process to individuals and their families. Additionally, we provide coaching to school districts that are looking to systemically provide a person-centered, community-based approach to the transition of their students. 
When working with an individual student and his/her team or circle of support, we:
• Meet with the student, his/her family, school based team, and outside friends/support people to develop a relationship with all involved and discover the individual's interests, strengths, gifts, talents and needs
• Facilitate a Person-Centered Planning Process, such as MAPs, PATH, and Personal Futures Planning. This process results in a document that identifies that student's vision and a related concrete action plan.
• Work with the team to create a transition plan that includes goals, objectives, and activities
• Facilitate regular team meetings (at least monthly) with the student and his/her team to monitor the implementation of the plan.
• Work with the team to implement the plan.  This may include:  facilitating meetings amongst staff working with the student; providing expert recommendations for the student and team regarding transition; and contacting and coordinating services from other agencies who provide job development, job coaching, related services, and any other service deemed necessary according to the plan.
• Work with the team to develop a post-school plan that addresses all transition domains which may include: housing, post-secondary education, vocational training, employment, recreation etc.
• Collaborate and coordinate with adult service providers and funding streams to implement the in-school plan and ensure a smooth transition to post-school activities.
• Act as on-going liaison between the school district administrator and the team

For districts looking for district-wide assistance, we provide workshops and coaching to the school district administrator and staff.
