I teach eighteen to twenty-one-year-old young adults with a variety of intellectual, physical, and sensory impairments in our high school's Transition Program.
My students are focusing their time in school on preparing for life after high school; that looks different for every student.
We work with each student individually to help them communicate what their personal goals and visions for their futures are.
Building real-world life skills and work skills are essential to help them succeed once they transition out of school and try to gain employment and have some independence.
My students practice real-world job skills. Clerical work is an easy task to learn because it allows them to work quietly and independently. Most of my students feel more confident while working alone.
My students can assist teachers within the school campus to laminate their projects for their classrooms.
These skills learned can then be carried into a job within their community in hopes that they can obtain a position within a printing company or a local library.
Laminating also enhances students with their fine motor skills and assembling skills. After a project has been completed, students can deliver a project to a teacher and practice their social skills.
