Career Skills Program

The Career Skills Program is designed for adolescents with mild to moderate learning disabilities with high-functioning Autism. There is a strong emphasis on academics, technology and social skills as students prepare to be college and career ready when they complete high school. Students have the opportunity to take courses online, face-to-face or in a hybrid format. Career Skills offers group pragmatics and social skills instruction, support in improving executive functioning, and group counseling to support students in navigating their social environment effectively and successfully. Career Skills is located in one of our member district high schools; students have access to the general curriculum through mainstream classes within the building. They may also access LPVEC Career TEC for vocational education if appropriate.
