Students may qualify for DORS Pre-employment Transition Services which are limited services to prepare them for future employment, training, or college options. Students who are interested in these services and are at least 14 years old but less than 22, and have a documented disability may be referred.
Students interested in Pre-employment Transition Services should be referred to DORS once they begin secondary school and are at least 14 years of age. Referrals can be completed by calling your local DORS office to complete a referral over the phone or by completing our online referral form.
The I.P.E. also describes the responsibilities of both the individual and DORS. The I.P.E. must be approved by DORS before VR services can begin.
DORS counselors who are transition specialists work with school personnel to assist students with disabilities getting ready to leave high school.
