Transitioning to Adulthood
Riverside Transition Services help students ages 14 through high school graduation and their families navigate high school and the transition into adulthood. These services encompass a student's entire transition, from helping parents determine eligibility to finding community employment. We also offer information and support for those we serve who are interested in living in and connecting with their community.
We collaborate with students, their families, schools, community businesses/organizations and other Riverside staff who may be able to help during the transition process. For more information, please contact us.
Contact Eligibility at (937) 440-3080 to initiate the eligibility process for those ages 3 and over.
Provide documentation of a developmental disability, such as a psychological evaluation
or an Evaluation Team Report (ETR).
After a document review, an Eligibility Determination appointment and other information may be requested.
If determined eligible, you will be contacted by a Service & Support Administrator, or SSA.
