FOCUS

Special education transition program for students, ages 18-21. Currently, 8 students are enrolled. Most have an Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) diagnosis and demonstrate significant verbal or physical acting out behavior.

Students’ ability levels are from average to the gifted range. They have transition needs: post-secondary education and training, work and independent living as well as the need to develop self-advocacy and social communication skills. FOCUS students are impacted by chronic mental illness and are more likely to exhibit serious and persistent behaviors in the community, home, school, and work.

The program provides customized transition programming based on students’ areas of high interest in a highly structured, small group instructional setting that allows for flexible scheduling to provide community and vocational-based experiences. Self-regulation, communication interaction, self-advocacy, and life skills are integrated into the curriculum.
