  Adult Living Skills
J Grosskurth landscaping The instructional activities of the Young Adult Program are dedicated to encourage and support adult living skills in special education students ages 18 to 26. Exploration and participation in employment, independent living skills, and community participation based on student needs and interests are ongoing focuses. Coordination with other community resources and student self-advocacy are also integral to the program's goals and services.

Each year students and family supports are asked to identify long-term goals in the areas of employment, post-secondary training, adult living and community participation.
Students identify three areas related to these goals:
