The Vocational Program serves all ages and ranges of ability from 16+ With a focus on independence, social understanding and connection to the community. Depending on the needs and wants of the student and their family goals will include building healthy relationships, strengthening communication skills, volunteering & job prep as well as further education supports.
For more independence in the world and work-related endeavors, Atlas will, over the course of the initial sessions, complete a comprehensive developmental assessment (i.e. SCDS, Brigance, etc) in order to accurately show students current levels of skill and mastery across all areas as well as identifying learning preferences and accounting for unique sensory profiles.
