Students with special needs had a productive Thursday evening preparing for their futures after graduation at the fourth annual Mid-Ohio Valley Transition Fair.

People were there getting information on community resources and transition services that can help them land a job or go to college after graduating.

Area rehabilitation centers helped students and parents develop a career plan they had in mind.

The fair was put on by the Transition Committee of the Mid-Ohio Valley.

REM West Virginia, SW Resources and Westbrook Health Services were among rehabilitation centers in attendance.

"Often times, students don't really know what's going on in the community and they may have an idea on what they want to do but they don't know how to get to that point, they may have a goal but they don't know what services may be available until it's time to graduate," says West Virginia Division of Rehabilitation Services Counselor, Marsha Spiker.

The Transition Committee of the Mid-Ohio Valley is planning to have another Transition Fair sometime next spring.

For more information, please call the West Virginia Division of Rehabilitation Services at 304-420-4580.
