Hello-we live in South Dakota and are looking for a post secondary transition

the east coast, but i can't seem to find much West of us. Anyone have
any ideas? Thanks JHK

I'm not sure I understand your question, but is this the type of organization you are seeking:

Frank D. Lanterman Regional Center

Check with the Office of Vocational Rehabilitation. I think every state has one. Our special needs students in KY are referred to OVR in high school. Students are eligible for services after high school and it is a life-time service. Their job is to find services and programs that will benefit your child. If there is a post-secondary transition program in the West, they will know about it. I know KY Office of Vocational Rehab has a web site. If South Dakota has one, they may have a web site, too.

There is a program in Roswell New Mexico at ENMU. They may be aware of others. It depends on the abilities of your son, also.

Default Post-secondary special services program in the West

Hello. I am the former Asst. Director of the Occupational Training Program at ENMU-Roswell in Roswell, New Mexico. The Special Services OTP is a wonderful program offering vocational and independent living skills at the post-secondary level for individuals who have disabilities. The instructors are, generally, very good but the program administration is currently undergoing some much-needed change. Check it all out at the ENMU-R website.
