A Confidence Boost

Project Discovery Adapted Curriculum Proves Game-Changer for Student with Autism

Due to intellectual delays and struggles with communication, Cory did not perform well in traditional classes. ‘Career exploration is critical for students with cognitive, physical, or behavioral issues,’ explains Theresa Cortney, a Transition and Employment Specialist.

This curriculum changed his life. Today, Cory volunteers at a local animal shelter and has enrolled in a vet assistance program.

He is more talkative, he maintains eye-contact with classmates, and his confidence has taken a big step forward!

The Project Discovery curriculum is our first step in helping these students develop their passion and calling.

Alabama Students with Special Needs Gain Key Workforce Skills with Hands-On Career Instruction

Alabama’s Lauderdale County Schools are using Education Associates’ Project Discovery Adapted Series to teach students with cognitive disabilities essential life skills and core academics.

‘My teachers have loved it,’ says Brooke Gilmer, Director of Special Education. ‘It’s straightforward and gives them what they need without requiring much prep.’

The kits cover the most common jobs that individuals with disabilities are likely to find in their community. Additionally, students learn basic life skills such as using money and communicating with colleagues.

The Adapted Series is my favorite program we have implemented. It teaches students in the way that they learn best.
