"Project SEARCH brings all the best practices together that we know about Transition to Work in one model: Interagency collaboration between schools, adult providers, and business; an immersion in a business for work-based learning; systematic instruction and data collection; family involvement; and blended funding. Most importantly, meaningful employment outcomes."
