Learning Day Program

Our team of Life Skills Educators deliver a quality curriculum-based program built on pillars of Self-Awareness, Self-Management, and Self-Advocacy/Expression. Staff conduct ongoing evaluations and provide participants with progress reports each semester to reflect growth and celebrate achievements.
