I would like to personally welcome you to our Vocational, Transitional and Day Habilitation Program which promotes independence through real life
experiences and life skills training. The staff and I recognize the inherent worth and dignity of each person involved, and we support the belief that each person deserves to live a rewarding and fulfilling life as possible.
As a certified educator with a Master’s in Education Administration, I have a special affinity for working with students young and old who have been identified as possessing learning deficits. Adult learners with special needs learn best in a safe/structured environment that will meet their needs. I favor instruction that requires active participation of all learners. I have a passion for working with adults with special needs because I believe these individuals can succeed by designing and modifying instruction to meet their transitional, vocational and behavioral needs.
18 and Beyond Special Services is a 501c3 charitable organization that provides vocational, transitional and employment services to special needs adults transitioning from a high school setting to an adult setting.
18 and Beyond Special Services proudly serves people with intellectual/developmental disabilities. The agency was founded based on the belief that with a better choice of services, positive behavioral approaches, and a respectful environment, individuals with disabilities could enhance their chances to have a better life.
Our goal is to teach our young adult students important self-determination and self-advocacy skills across four learning domains:
1. Education and Training
3. Community Orientation
4. Independent Living
We also specialize in vocational rehabilitation services, supportive employment, and day habilitation for special needs adults.
18 and Beyond Special Services is committed to providing people with intellectual/developmental disabilities the home life, education, and training to develop to their greatest potential. If you know of someone who might benefit from our Day Habilitation Program or any of our services, please encourage them to contact us. Executive Director
