Students between the ages of 13-21 are directly referred by School Division student services teams and administration. Making Connections is designed as a transitional program as students prepare to leave the school setting, anticipating entering into the adult services day program after 21 years of age. This program provides alternative academic/life skills programming using close community-school-home partnerships as well as an individualized alternative setting for individual education plan (IEP) accomplishment. Students of Making Connections Program benefit from a small facility with small staff-to-student ratio. Making Connections participants are able to work on their academic material as well as establish a stronger base of life/independent living skills and pre-employment skill development.
Each participant has a complete plan of care developed and focused on short and long term goals.
At age 21, students graduate from the program and have the option to continue with their day-to-day program by entering into the Network 4 Change Healthy Independence Program.
