Local transition programs

You can find programs with services for teens in our Resource Directory.

Look in these sections: Education & Employment, and Adult Programs & Services.

The Arcs are a good example of what these programs may offer. They have offices throughout the state and each offers slightly different services.

The Arc of Louisiana has 20 chapters in the state.
