Subject: transitional programs

I am looking for transitional programs for kids with learning disabilities who want to go to college but need help in learning to live on their own. Ideally they could live in a residential setting while going to junior college or a vacational program. Thanks!

Programs to consider are:

1) Maplebrook School Center for the Advancement of Postsecondary Studies, Amenia, NY 845-373-8191;

2) Brehm School Postsecondary Options Program, Carbondale, IL www.brehm.org;

3) Riverview School G.R.O.W. Program, East Sandwich, MA 508-888-1315;

4) Horizon School, Birmingham,AL www.ed.uab.edu/horizons/index.html;

5) Vocational Independence Program of the New York Institute of Technology, Islip (Long Island), NY www.nyit.edu/general/vip.html;

6) Lesley College Threshold Program, Cambridge, MA
www.lesley.edu/threshold/threshold_home.htm;

7) PACE Program, associated with National Louis University, Evanston, IL

8) Chiara Career College, associated with Cardinal Stritch University, Wisconsin 920-674-8452

9) Berkshire Center for Independent Living, Lee, Massachusetts
413-243-2576

10) Minnesota Life College, Richfield, MN

Some of these programs include the possibility of attending the local community college while in the program, but others are focused only on the independent living, social and vocational skills. Of course, if the student is interested and able college might be an option later after achieving the independent living skills and a little more maturity.

Get hold of the K&W Guide to Colleges for Learning-Disabled Students. It should offer you the kind of information you're looking for.
