comparisons adjusted for inflation (CPI)

The Mass. Commission for the Blind Turning 22 program funds services for eligible young blind adults who have graduated from special education. This line item pays only for the share of services provided during the transition year in which the young adult turns 22.

When students with disabilities reach their 22nd birthday, they are no longer eligible for the services to which they were entitled under the state’s special education laws. Chapter 688 of the Acts of 1983 (the “Turning 22” law) provides that each young adult will have a personalized transition plan describing the potential service needs for this young adult, but does not guarantee that the Commonwealth will provide those services.

The Mass. Commission for the Blind provides a case manager for legally blind young adults. This case manager could be a specialist in vocational rehabilitation, social work, or in supporting the transition to independent living, depending on the needs of the young adult.

To be eligible for vocational rehabilitation services, a young adult must have a disability of legal blindness that has a significant impact on that person's ability to gain employment and must require and be able to benefit from vocational rehabilitation services for employment.
