The Transition Center at Wood-Ridge

The Transition Center at Wood-Ridge is a Life Skills Program within Bergen County Special Services serving students from Middle School through Age 21.  We provide a full day, IEP-driven instruction focused on the mastery of skills required for daily living and working in the community.  Working side by side with teachers, teacher assistants, therapists, and if needed, educational interpreters, our students are exposed to grade level academics presented to them on each of their individual levels.  
Our students – ages 15 and under - participate in Community Partnerships including:
  • Health Barn USA 
  • DDA Dance Academy 
  • Power Training Center Taekwondo
Our students – ages 16 and over – gain employment experience by cycling through 10 different group internship sites including:
  • Grocery Stores
  • College Campuses 
  • County Properties 
  • Retailers
  • Restaurants
  • Catering Halls
