Transition Night Event Showcases Opportunities for Adults with Disabilities


The Disabled Student Programs and Services (DSPS) annual Transition Night will be held on Wednesday, April 23, 2014 from 6:30 p.m. - 8:30 p.m. in a new location, the Downtown Anaheim Youth Center Gym (225 S. Philadelphia Street, Anaheim, CA, 92805). The event provides an opportunity for people with disabilities to see many of the programs that Orange County and LA County have to offer all in one exciting evening.

Members of the community are invited to attend this free event to learn more about the independent options for living, working, and attending educational programs for adults with disabilities.  DSPS staff and faculty will be available to share information about current SCE course offerings and programs, including independent living skills, job skills training, college to career, and mobility/transportation training programs.

Vendors from over 45 community agencies will also share information including those with independent living and housing programs, social security, transportation agencies, and education programs.  Last year the successful event welcomed over 450 people in attendance including students, parents, caregivers, and case managers. Reviews from last year’s attendees were overwhelmingly positive in regards to the presenters, the vendor information, and the overall benefit of the event.

DSPS has partnered with many businesses over the past several years to place trained students in employment internships as well as jobs.  Because empowering students with disabilities in the workplace part of our mission, DSPS is pleased to honor Ms. Felicia Ferra, Director of Little Minds Preschool, a local Anaheim employer who has partnered with SCE to hire students. This presentation will take place at 7 p.m.


For more information, or if special accommodations are needed to participate in the event, contact the SCE DSPS office at 714.484.7057.
