Dear Intervention Specialist,

 As educators, it is our goal to provide our students with the tools they will need for a successful future. In part, that success depends on the development of essential skills identified by prospective employers. While ability levels of students will differ, employer expectations remain constant. Students with special needs require deliberate and systematic skills training to help transition for their future. 

The Work Transition Program, offered through Northwest Ohio Educational Service Center and housed at Four County Career Center, promotes the development of employability skills, along with social/emotional, behavioral and daily living skills needed for success in both the workplace and in life. We are excited to partner with you in providing the experiences and training needed for the next step toward your student’s path to adulthood and employment. 

 As part of the enrollment process, we need information on the student’s strengths and weaknesses in specific skill areas. This information will help with future instructional planning, IEP goals and objectives, and potential job site placements. The Considerations for Enrollment form may help you determine which students will most benefit from our program. Once a student is determined to benefit from the Work Transition Program, please fill out the Student Referral Application. (Please note the additional required documentation requested on this form.) The Vocational Evaluation form will also help us determine the student’s current skills. 

We ask that referrals be submitted as soon as possible. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to call or email. Parents, students and teachers are encouraged to visit our program on an individual basis, if desired. We do ask that you call and arrange a time and date with the instructors. We can be reached at the Work Transition Program at 419-267-2296. 

Thank you for considering our program. We look forward to partnering with you to meet the goals of our students.
