Pre-Employment Transition Services (Pre-ETS) / Career Development
Pre-Employment Transition Services (Pre-ETS) are specialized services that aim to assist children with Mild Intellectual Disabilities (MID) and Moderate to Intellectual Disabilities (MOID), in transitioning from school to the workforce or post-secondary education. These services are designed to provide the knowledge, skills, and resources necessary to achieve their goals and lead fulfilling, independent lives. Pre-ETS services can be customized to meet the unique needs of each high school child and can include a range of activities such as career exploration, job coaching, workplace readiness training, and post-secondary education planning. The importance of Pre-ETS services for children with MID and MOID cannot be overstated. These services can help them overcome challenges especially around limited work experience by providing them with targeted support. By receiving these services early on in their academic careers, students with MID and MOID are better equipped to plan for their futures and achieve their career and education goals.
