Supported Education

Supported Education is a unique program designed to give participants support and guidance as they develop marketable skills through post-secondary education.  Participants are provided with ongoing support throughout the semester with registering for classes, accessing campus resources and communicating with faculty.  There is also a one-week skills training available prior to each semester focusing on stress and time management, college expectations and developing natural supports on campus.

Supported Education serves adults age 18 and older who are diagnosed with a developmental and/or intellectual disability in Polk and surrounding counties.

Funding Accepted: Polk County and Private Pay
