Our students attend public and private schools across Lee, Hendry and Glades counties, in addition to those who are home-schooled. We work with the schools, families and our transportation department to coordinate and provide rides to our center on a specific day of the week for each student.
We encourage our students to be as independent as possible when it comes to transportation, including utilizing public transportation, paratransit and ride-sharing to return home at the end of the day.
Goals for weekly after school meetings are as varied and far-reaching as our students. For example, during a typical two-hour session, a student may meet with our Certified Vision Rehabilitation Therapist and learn how to repair a stitch for an hour, and then spend the second hour with our Certified Assistive Technology Information Specialist practicing finding a phone number for a tailor on the internet using JAWS, Zoomtext or Fusion.
