Developing a Postsecondary Career and Technical Education Program to Support Students with Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities

Posted by Alexandra Kielty - On May 01, 2015 (EST)

In April, the Florida Developmental Disabilities Council announced the posting of a guide that describes Project Achieve, a program that provides a support system for students with intellectual and developmental disabilities who enroll in Career and Technical Education programs at Florida State College at Jacksonville. This inclusive program model assists students with intellectual and developmental disabilities to attend classes and earn certification alongside their peers without disabilities. This guide has two sections. The first is an overview of Project Achieve and the second is a "How To" guide that outlines step-by-step tasks for the development of each phase of the program.

Section 1: An Inside Look at Support Postsecondary Career and Technical Program at Florida State College at Jacksonville. This booklet provides an overview of Project Achieve, an inclusive program designed to expand access to Postsecondary Career and Technical programs for students with intellectual and developmental disabilities.
Section 2: Launching a Support Postsecondary Career and Technical Program, is for those who are interested in replicating a Support Postsecondary Career and Technical Program at a public state college or community college. This section outlines the tasks involved in developing a program that provides a support system that assists students with intellectual and developmental disabilities to attend classes and earn certification.
