WATTS IN IT FOR YOUR STAFF AND STUDENTS?
WATTS provides evidenced-based transition services designed to maximize the potential of young adults in the areas of community-based vocational experiences, positive social relationships and independent living skills. WATTS offers a full range of services, including, but not limited to: assessment and evaluation, employment training, Independent Living Skills development, socialization and community involvement (including access to continuing education courses) and resource acquisition (inter-agency support). Functional and social skills necessary to succeed on the job are taught as well as self-advocacy skills.
Students of the WATTS Program are individually developed using a person-centered approach. Each is creative in the focus of developing deficit skill areas while building self-esteem and coping skills. A cooperative relationship with the district is a focus for all students, family involvement is welcomed and fostered, and training opportunities are made available to all. WATTS Program Students will include community components to support a meaningful transition to life after high school.
