Pre-Employment Transition Services (Pre-ETS)

Pre-Employment Transition Services (Pre-ETS) offer students with disabilities an early start at career exploration and preparation for adult life. DVR works with students and their families, along with schools and community partners to support students with gaining knowledge. In addition, students take part in pre-employment experiences that help them to make informed decisions about their future.
