DISTINGUISHING FEATURES - EUNICE KENNEDY SHRIVER PROGRAM
The Eunice Kennedy Shriver Program (formerly the Stratford Program) is designed for students ages 11 to 22 who are significantly impacted by their disabilities. The Shriver Program provides specially designed instruction and related services to meet the individual needs of students. Shriver utilizes both classroom and community resources to provide instruction and identify adult placements in the community. Parents and community agencies collaborate with the Shriver team to create opportunities for students to build skills and increase independence. Community based instruction and vocational training are also integrated in each student’s educational plan. Transition plans start at age 14, but actual case management with adult services starts just prior to age 18.
Preparation for adult community living is the primary goal of the Shriver Program. In order to achieve this goal, a wide range of programs are developed to address each student’s needs. Areas of instruction are based on vocational and community skills, daily living skills, communication, leisure, recreation and other independent skills.
