COD Offers Courses for Young Adults with Developmental Disabilities
By Robyn Johnson
Continuing Education is responding to a need in the community for classes designed for young adults with mild to moderate developmental disabilities.
The "Reach Out" courses complement other offerings within College of DuPage. A student does not have to reside in District 502 to attend. Classes can be taken multiple times as new information is introduced.
The courses are designed for 21- to 40-year-old developmentally disabled students who conduct themselves appropriately in a classroom situation and who can independently and safely find their way to classes. (No transportation will be provided.) Classes are limited to 12 students and include Independent Living Skills, Communication Skills, Time Management Skills and Self-Advocacy Skills.
