My Students

My students are young adults with special needs. Our curriculum focuses on the skills necessary to lead productive and hopefully independent lives. Students learn basic skills such as cooking, shopping, recycling, basic bank transactions, etc. Additionally, we do volunteer work in nearby communities. The students travel throughout nearby communities in our effort to obtain necessary skills for the remainder of their lives. They are working hard everyday to "fit in" and we work hard at helping them along their journey.

My Project

This is a department wide initiative. The adult bicycles will be used on an almost daily basis to access the communities, businesses and activities in Alamo, Danville and San Ramon.

Uses include transportation to:

- volunteer sites

- work sites

- banking

- food shopping

- trips to nearby venues

- bowling

- restaurants

- home improvement stores

- libraries

-Crayon Initiative

- recycling centers

The bikes also help us provide a service called Delivering Independence. Along with our Speech Pathologist, students take staff lunch orders from Trader Joe's and drink orders for Starbucks on a weekly basis. While this may not seem like much to most of the population where a morning Starbucks is a way of life, it provides our students with many skills. Following specific procedures, using scripts, maintaining guest interaction, accepting and delivering guest orders, proper use of money and retail transactions are just a few of the skills honed with this simple act. Once a month, we provide Starbucks service for the Special Education Department at the district and a select few others.

The bicycles will augment the tricycles that we currently utilize, for students who have higher executive and motor functioning!
