Tech and Career Development

Learning for a Tomorrow NJ

When a career in retail is not what your learner wants...

I often talk to school professionals regarding the topic of post high schools careers for students with disabilities. Often times, the skills that are being introduced are helping in a fastfood restaurant, stuffing envelopes, serving coffee, or filing various forms in the main office. Those skills, while appropriate for some, are not meeting the needs of all potential graduates.
