Preparing our students to transition from high school to the adult world and responsibilities is a top priority at Matheny. Our transition activities begin in high school, where each student is assessed for needs, strengths, preferences, and interests. This is an outcome-oriented process tailored to each student’s special needs and level of independence. For some students, transition activities may be as basic as the acquisition of daily living skills. For others, activities may include opportunities to develop good work habits and build up physical stamina and concentration capabilities. Students can also learn specific job skills, which they will have opportunities to practice in authentic work settings both on and off campus.

The ultimate goal of all Matheny School transition activities is to help all students achieve their maximum level of independence, productivity, and fulfillment.

The Matheny School transition teachers are New Jersey certified special education teachers who also hold certifications in Community-Based Instruction and Structured Learning Experience.
