The New Britain Transition classroom is located at the Hospital For Special Care. Our students are ages 10-21, with intellectual, behavioral, or multiple disabilities.  Behavioral, and therapeutic supports are provided by our multi-disciplinary team to maximize each student’s development.  We include intensive instruction for vocational training, independent living, and community participation.  Activities in authentic environments facilitate the generalization of learned skills. Students practice improved social and communication skills for self-advocacy and future success. The program also focuses on functional academics in language arts, math, science, and social studies. Many of the students complete requirements for a high school diploma, and all leave with a portfolio and resume.
