My Students

Our students are 18-22 year old young adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities. They're extremely talented, motivated individuals, interested in improving their job skills for future employment and lives of independence, connection, and happiness.

Our school is located in New Orleans, LA and promotes the authentic integration of our student body into our communities.

Students spend up to three quarters of their day working, taking classes in, and accessing the community. Students receive direct instruction on site, may go to the local community college for classes, work an externship at a local restaurant or organization, and receive small group instruction in our independent living lab. Because of the diverse needs of our students, each student schedule will provide a student experience most aligned to their long-term career and life goals.

My Project

With items like a sensory body sock and finger board device, students are able to identify their sensory needs, which empowers them to be better equipped to work on their transition goals in community access, independent living, and employment.

Movement is key to building and enhancing our students' physical, cognitive, creative, and emotional abilities.

We want to provide opportunities for students with specific needs to access unique items that will build independence. They will assist the holistic and individual growth of each student that we work with! With your help, our students will work with items they have previously never had access to.
