The Cape Organization for the Rights of the Disabled offers a Transition to Adulthood Program (TAP)
CORD's TAP works with students aged 14-22 who are transitioning from Special Education to the community.
As youths start to learn and understand the varying attitudes that their peers, friends, family, teachers and other people in the public may have about people with disabilities, TAP helps support and educate them about self-advocacy and their rights. The unique peer relationships CORD builds are the foundation of our work with youth.
Educate students on their rights;
Assist students in setting goals for their future;
Work with students, their families, and schools to access benefits and create transition plans;
Help students explore options for further education, job training, and housing;
Encourage students to be involved in CORD activities
