We want to thank all of those who donated to the Great Dream Machine Sweepstakes. Your donations go towards serving individuals in our community with intellectual and developmental disabilities.  
We will have another sweepstakes beginning April 1st of 2016! 


In preparing to leave high school, students will have many decisions to make including: What kinds of work do they want to do?  What additional education or training will be required?  Where do they want to live?  What will be required to live independently?  What transportation options do they have access to? 

Although families are encouraged to begin thinking about transition planning while children are young, formal transition planning for students with disabilities should begin by age 14.

Many parents and children find the idea of transitioning daunting and do not know where to begin.  Some parents have not yet thought about their child’s path after high school. Intersect For Ability of Northern Illinois has developed a Transition Resource Guide and Video to aid families and students in preparation for a rewarding life after high school. 

The Arc of Winnebago, Boone and Ogle Counties is pleased to be a part of this project and encourages you to view and download this Transition Resource Guide and Video if you or a loved one are beginning the transition process.
