Transition to Adult Services

​Warrah offers a tailored program for school leavers through the ‘Discovery – Young Adults’ service, which provides a supported and individually designed transition into adulthood for school leavers and young adults.

Discovery is designed to provide a tailored program for young adults with disabilities to continue their education, maximise their social, community and life skills and become as independent as possible. The program covers the following key areas:

  • Continuing education in literacy, numeracy and information technology
  • Life skills – including public transport travel training, cooking, shopping, safety in the community and relationships
  • Community contribution and participation – including work experience and volunteering
  • Developing a strong sense of identity through decision making, developing interests and taking on responsibilities.

During the final year of school, students participate in an individually designed transition plan in consultation with parents. This varies according to the student’s interests and goals, and can includes social activities, and participation in adult day programs and courses. Furthering the practical skills developed at the school, work experience and supported employment are amongst the options offered.
