Program Eligibility

The Next Step™ program has been specifically designed to serve young, transition age individuals (18-29) with developmental disabilities such as Autism Spectrum Disorders, Executive Functioning Disorders, ADHD, and other learning disabilities that may lead to barriers to employment. Students that will be considered for entry into this program should possess a high school diploma or certificate of completion/attendance.

All students will need to furnish Next Step™ with a copy of their high school transcripts, and our office may be inclined to request them from your previous school. Every student will need to sign a records release form in our office.

Students that are currently enrolled with the Kern High School District will not become eligible until they complete and exit that program. We are unable to run concurrently with any high school continuing education program. If you or your parent/guardian has questions, please feel free to contact us.
