Early Intervention and Transition to Adult Services

The Westwood Public Schools works closely with our area Early Intervention Providers to insure a seamless transition from early intervention services into the Westwood Integrated Preschool Program for students who are eligible for special education services. This program provides opportunities for inclusion of preschool children. Our Preschool program is located at the Westwood Integrated Preschool, 200 Nahatan Street.
 
The Westwood Public Schools has active and creative partnerships with public and private agencies to facilitate our students' transition  to adult services.  Agency liaisons from the Department of Mental Health (DMH), the Department of Public Health (DPH), the Department of Developmental Services (DDS), and the Massachusetts Rehabilitation Commission (MRC) are frequent and welcome collaborators as we plan for our students' successful transition to adulthood.

 

The Westwood Public Schools collaborates with the Westwood Commission on Disability.  The Commission on Disability works on issues of great importance to Town residents with disabilities and their families.  These include housing, transportation, physical access and emergency planning.  THey also present 'Caring for the Caregiver' events to support families.
