La Crosse County Transition Resources
Sponsored by the La Crosse County Community on Transition
Who are we?
The La Crosse County Community on Transition (CCoT) is a network of local schools, service organizations and businesses that share an interest in helping youth with disabilities make successful transitions into adulthood while continuing to reside in our communities.
What do we do?
The CCoT meets regularly to identify issues, barriers, supports and solutions that will assist students in making a successful transition based on their individual goals for training, education, employment and independent living.
COMMUNITY EVENTS ANNOUNCEMENTS:
Join student-planned ‘Walk with an Eagle’ each week at UWL Student Union
Walking, moving on your own or with mobility aids, benefits you physically, mentally, and when done with others, socially. AARP in La Crosse is pleased to collaborate with the UWL Therapeutic Recreation program to offer weekly walks called “Walk with an Eagle” on the accessible campus. Each week, the group will begin the student-planned walk in the UWL Student Union on the third floor, Room #3314.
