Transitions, launched in 2015, is one of Lexington’s projects. It is a supportive Apprenticeship program for young men and women with autism spectrum disorders and other learning differences. Transitions helps those who want to attend college and/or prepare for a career, but may require academic, social, medical and/or emotional support to be successful.

Transitions focuses on building academic skills, life skills and general independence for high school graduates and young adults with learning differences. Its evidence-based curriculum covers social skills, health and wellness, independent life, self-management, and self-advocacy and leadership – all essential skills that, once mastered, will steer the Apprentices toward success in college, the workplace and living on their own.

The program also offers direct support to Apprentices who are enrolled in college and those who are employed.
