Transitions Intensive Introduction

This class focused on five areas of transitions Post Secondary Options, Employment, Home skills, Recreation and Community Involvement. We worked with the teachers to set and accomplish goals around these areas. We were out of a classroom setting a number of days and it was great experiences. Some of the activities we did the past two weeks include; cooking, sewing, baking, snowshoeing, making dream catchers, resumes, job applications, researching disabilities, and exploring the Minnesota History Center.
