The Phoenix Union Exceptional Student Services (ESS) department held its Transition Fair at Central High School, November 7. The PUHSD Transition Fair and Division of Developmental Disabilities (DDD) Provider Fair joined forces for the  event, which provided parents/guardians of ESS students with information on the various types of services that are provided to individuals who receive DDD services. Two presentations were also available to families: “Tips for A Successful Transition,” which provided families with information on what they need to know to make good decisions about a career or job path and how Vocational Rehabilitation services may help with reaching career goals, and  “Raising Special Kids Overview,” which provided families with children with disabilities and special health career needs in Arizona with more information on local training, resources, and support services. 

The District’s Job Developers were there representing the schools and helping families with transition. “This group is an amazing hidden treasure that work tirelessly with our ESS families,” said Melissa Jackson, Supervisor of Exceptional Student Services.
