The participants who attend the Transition program are young adults with disabilities. Participants have expressed the need for more social/emotional support while at school. We focus on employment, daily living, self determination and community participation skills. All participants need help throughout many aspects of their lives and struggle to complete tasks necessary to get through each day. The needs for our participants to gain meaningful independence grows each year. In the recent years we have seen an increase in need for mental health services within our building. In the fall of 2019 participants worked together to research what could help the needs of our building and a therapy dog was decided as a group for what could help. Participants researched and presented to our superintendent and school board which resulted in a yes from everyone to pursue a therapy dog for the program. Participants were very excited and continued their research. Training is the final step in the process to allow a therapy dog to assist our student needs on a daily basis. Participants often come in the building upset about something that happened at home or with friends. Many do not know how to process the demands of the day and need time to decompress. Many come from classes and work sites overwhelmed. This are just a few of the reasons our participants feel like a therapy dog would increase the success of participants each day.
