About the Learning Program

The Brooklyn Transition Center is located in Bed- Stuy Brooklyn and part of the New York City Department of Education. The BTC serves students ages 13 - 21 with profound developmental disabilities, including Autism, Down Syndrome, Emotional disturbance, and Intellectual Disabilities. Each of our students has an Individual Education Plan (IEP) and 37% are English Language Learners. We prepare students with varying abilities for adulthood through innovative programming, simulated work-based learning labs, access to wellness, authentic community experiences, and hands-on, functional academics. Through person-centered life planning with families and partner organizations, we empower students to become active, independent and well rounded members of the community.
