Focus Beyond Transition Services is a special education program that works with young adults ages 18-22 who have unmet special education needs. The program offers on-site seminars and community-based activities and experiences in which students have the opportunity to explore their employment, post-secondary, and independent living skills. Our goal is to increase independence at an individual level, so that the young adults with whom we work can be active members of their community.
Dr. Kelly Dietrich is the principal at Focus Beyond Transition Services.
