S.A.L.T. - School-to-Adult Life Transition Series™ is a FREE monthly series developed to provide valuable information, along with resources and guidance to families of children or young adults with developmental disabilities to help navigate the transition from school to adult life and beyond.
Student Series, ages 14 – 22+ (can include older individuals), are also encouraged to attend their own series, which takes place at the same time as the parents’ series. Students will participate in fun interactive activities to help them prepare for the transition from school to adult life.
SALT TALKS - An Online Transition Series & SALT TEENS Talk were created in 2020 and the New Lunch & Learn Series (2021) due to the pandemic. This newer virtual platform provides the same basic information and resources as the original "SALT" & Student Series noted previously, but has become a welcomed newer platform for parents and staff.

If you would like to replicate a S.A.L.T. program in your area, you can contact us for more information & details. We are currently seeking to expand the S.A.L.T. model program into additional Ohio counties and surrounding states.
Presentations and guest speakers focus on specific transition related topics making it understandable for families or caregivers.
Parent Sessions may include but not limited to topics such as:
A fun, interactive and creative class geared to bring awareness about self-advocacy, independent living and other transition related topics to students or young adults with disabilities. These sessions are organized and facilitated by the local County Board or a third party guest organization.
Student sessions often mirror the parent S.A.L.T. sessions, for example:
How do I make a good decision? > SALT: Guardianship & the Alternatives
How do I spend money wisely? > SALT: STABLE Account or Navigating Social Security
What do I need to know to get a good job? > SALT: Employment or Career Planning
Launching A SALT Series In Your Community
Is your community in need of a program to help parents of individuals with disabilities build basic knowledge and advocacy skills in order to support their children with disabilities as they navigate the school to adult life transition?
S.A.L.T Resource Solutions LLC has developed a S.A.L.T. – School to Adult Life Transition Series™ program model and the virtual SALT TALKS for replication. Parents, students and other attendees participating in S.A.L.T. – School to Adult Life Transition Series™ model have an interest in the transition process and barriers that are often present for individuals with disabilities. The "S.A.L.T." Series strives to help participants understand these barriers, achieve inclusion, learn about competitive employment in their communities, independent living, and other multiple transition related topics.
