Be supported into workforce
Transition services provide individuals with disabilities the information they need to make informed choices, regarding their future employment opportunities.
These services, which include Pre-Employment Transition Services (Pre-ETS), Transition to Employment, (TTE), and Career Preparation and Readiness (CPR), help individuals transition to work from either school or a less-integrated environment.
To learn about each programs services and participation requirements, please look below under the “Want to Learn More?” section near the bottom of this page.

Individuals who are interested in a more integrated employment option, but are unsure of those options, may be eligible for CPR services. CPR provides individuals with education and training on employment in integrated work settings. During CPR, an individual explores work in the community with an instructor, meets with others who are already working, gathers information and asks questions so that they can make an informed choice on whether or not a move to integrated employment is right for them. In addition, individuals and their advocates are educated on resources to help them make these moves into the community as well as disability 4 benefits counseling. To qualify for CPR, an individual must be a member with the Division of Developmental Disabilities (DDD) and be receiving center-based employment (CBE) services at Beacon Group.
TTE is a service that provides individuals with individualized instruction, training, and supports to promote skill development for integrated and competitive employment. Individuals will develop abilities, skills and behaviors that will help them realize their vocational aspirations as well as positive work habits, attitudes and work etiquette. TTE also provides opportunities for individuals to participate in unpaid work exploration and job shadowing. To qualify for TTE, an individual must be a member with the Division of Developmental Disabilities (DDD) and qualify for Arizona Long Term Care Services (ALTCS).
Pre-ETS are specific career exploration and job readiness services that help students with disabilities prepare for future employment. These services include: Job Exploration Counseling, Work-Based Learning, Post-Secondary Education Counseling, Work Readiness Training, and Instruction on Self-Advocacy. To qualify for services, students must have a documented disability, be enrolled in an educational setting, and be between the ages of 14-22 years old. Beacon Group also works directly with school teachers and administrators to coordinate services during the school year.
