Transition & Adult Services / Supported Employment Services
The Institute for the Redesign of Learning’s Transition and Adult Services (TAS) program and Supported Employment Services program are accredited by the Commission on the Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities (CARF) and offer personal and vocational skills training to youth and adults with developmental disabilities, emotional or mental health issues, and/or dual diagnoses. The TAS Program is vendored through the Eastern Los Angeles Regional Center and serves clients from surrounding Regional Centers as well. Participants in TAS are empowered to overcome social and adaptive skills deficits, which often prevent them from living and working independently and/or interfere with the quality of life that they are seeking to obtain. Our Supported Employment and Job Placement Services program offers employment preparation, job assessment, job placement, and on the job training to individuals with disabilities.

Parents and Caregivers
In recognizing that TAS participants must be empowered to take charge of their own lives in order to transition successfully into supported and independent living, the program tour provides the individual the opportunity to actively choose the most appropriate program with the consultation of parents and staff. Working together, TAS participants, staff and their families can achieve the best possible personal and vocational outcomes.
