My Students

The students receiving transition services have all been identified with a special disability or in some cases multiple disabilities. We are filled with pride when the shy student has gained enough confidence to go to work for the first time without a job coach or when a student returns from his first day from an unpaid job experience grinning from ear to ear.

What’s not to love about young adults who are enthusiastic about learning and becoming productive members of their community.

There is overwhelming joy felt when a non-verbal student finally realizes that through her communication device, she has a voice to say hello, make choices and is able to direct activities involving others. It is exciting to see our students helping one another because we realize that our students are learning that others have needs and count too. To see our students develop pride and confidence in themselves is the greatest gift our staff can receive. We are fortunate to have these young adults in our lives and we learn from them each day.

My Project

Our students come to us after having spent most of their school careers receiving special services, which in some cases has taught dependence rather than independence. We are now tasked with teaching functional academic, employment and daily living skills needed to mold successful, independent adults.

Being able to provide a fully equipped kitchen to teach LIFE SKILLS to our students will be carried over to the real world to promote independence.

Our students will be able to learn the process of meal preparation along with building healthy nutritional habits. They learn and grow through personal achievements as well as mistakes.
