A-6 is a transition classroom that focuses on the development of the life skills needed when students graduate. Our class participates in various community outings which include leisure, recreation, exercise/health, shopping and seasonal activities. In addition to our community outings, A-6 is also involved in a weekly community service project. The community service project helps students learn how they can assist others and be an active part of their community. This year we are focusing on functional communication in order to promote self-advocacy as well as address social/behavioral needs. The students within this class benefit from structured small group instruction in which they can use technology to practice real life skills prior to implementing them in the community.
