WINGS Transition Program

This is a program for students between the ages of 18 to 21 who are eligible for special education and have not earned a high school standard diploma.

WINGS provides first-hand independent living and work experiences within the community according to the students’ individual needs. Students are presented with instruction related to pre-employment skills, work experiences, functional independent living skills, self- advocacy, friendship and dating, and social emotional growth.

  • This program serves students between the ages of 18 to 21 with a wide range of abilities.
  • Students qualify by graduating from High School with a modified or alternative diploma and are eligible for an Individual Education Plan (IEP). Students in this program no longer participate in regular education classes.
  • Through the IEP process, appropriate learning opportunities are provided for individual student abilities and goals.
  • Each student’s unique learning experiences encompass a sequence of activities that build knowledge in a particular vocational and/or functional academic area.
  • Learning experiences expose students to all aspects of the work world and promote the development of broad transferable work and life skills.
  • Real or simulated tasks or assignments are provided in the classroom and community which encourage students to develop higher order critical thinking skills.
  • The WINGS program works with Benton County Developmental Diversity and Vocational Rehabilitation to support at successful transition into adulthood.
