To transition students from school to adult life by connecting them to opportunities and supports that foster their full participation in the community

 

CTC students between 18-21 years of age participate in the Student Transition and Education Program to further develop life skills, workplace readiness and community independence.

  • Real-world experiences that align with IEP goals
  • Social skills development: – Problem solving
– Decision making
– Self-Advocacy
  • Vocational experiences
  • Employability skills & good work habits
  • ctivities of daily living:
– CTC on-site, simulated “apartment” with a working kitchen and bedroom
  • Weekly, community based instruction trips:
    • stores
    • supermarkets
    • libraries
    • community centers
    • tours of local areas for leisure activities
    • And more!
