LIT is open to all adults, regardless of their developmental needs. We can accommodate both typically developing adults as well as those with more needs. Our staff is fully trained to accommodate the differing needs of all our participants.
All the various parts of our program, both transition assistance and community classes, are designed with these goals in mind:
First, we believe that helping individuals continue their developmental growth will assist them in all their endeavors as adults. Our program is designed to integrate this into each part of the day.
All classes are designed to help the participants acquire the skills sets needed to succeed in employment, whether that be full time, part time, or volunteer work. Embedded into all their activities will be lessons about what the world of work looks like, and how to successfully navigate it.
Living More Independently:
The program is designed to help participants learn to care for themselves both physically and emotionally in order to live as independently as possible. We will help them learn skills to advocate for themselves to most effectively live the life that they choose to live.
Participation in the Community:
A critical part of reaching for a fuller, more independent life is to be able to live and interact successfully within the communities in which we live. All our classes are designed to give participants time out and about in their community. Each class will regularly focus on the participants going out to observe and interact with the community at large in order for them to practice their newly developing skills.
