The Bureau of Services for Blind Persons Pre-Employment Transition Services (Pre-ETS) help students age 14 and over to successfully make the transition from high school to postsecondary education or employment.
- College Assessment
Before an Individual Plan for Employment is developed that includes the use of (Michigan) Bureau of Services for Blind Persons resources for college, the individual must demonstrate his or her ability to function in the academic environment. The College Assessment has been developed to measure a student's preparedness for college, specifically in the areas of communication skills, note taking, technology skills, travel, and activities of daily living.
