To continue to work through the education world to change the approach to transition planning.To increase the focus on employment and community integration.

Currently has apporixmately 500 resources that he is categorizing and that will be accessible on a website that is currently under construction. Intake staff currently take consumers/families through the initial stages of charting the Lifecourse. AE conducts quarterly audits to ensure quality in these practices.
