By law, your child should begin to receive transition planning starting at age 14. Unfortunately, due to budgetary and educational time constraints this doesn’t always happen. J Lynn Enterprises will work with you to ensure your child receives an individualized plan starting with their ultimate goal (college, work, independent living, etc.)
At J. Lynn Enterprises we use several tools to assess the needs of your loved one including…
- Transition Assessment for public and private school students with developmental disabilities
- Functional Vocational Evaluations and career assessments for students with special needs preparing for adulthood life
- Consulting, transition planning and program design for students, educators, and families
- Direct services, including job development, job coaching, and community-based learning and instruction for students with disabilities.
- Training for teachers, transition specialists, counselors, education staff, and parents on all IDEA 04 mandates as they relate to transition services
Regardless of their disability, J. Lynn Enterprises will work with your child and the school system to create a path that works.

I thought by attending numerous conferences and information session on Transition I’d be prepared to navigate this phase of my son’s education, but I was so wrong. Transition laws are hard to interpret and each school district differs in how they interpret these laws. I grew so frustrated knowing what my son “should” be doing during these critical years, but being met with road blocks. When I was introduced to Judith Imperatore I was blown away by her knowledge on Transition and her unique experiences working with families in the same boat.
Her thorough and comprehensive assessments were like nothing else I had seen, and they allowed me to advocate persuasively to get my son what he needed and deserved based on the laws. Her creative ideas, passion for what she does and vast wealth of knowledge in this field makes her an incredibly unique and valuable resource for any family with Transition age students.
