SCTI offers an excellent program that provides quality instructional opportunities for individuals who seek assistance in the acquisition and maintenance of basic life skills. Teachers guide the students so they may attain their highest level of independent functioning skills.
In response to today’s economy and the economic needs of its students, the EDUCATION FOUNDATION Building Blocks for Success grant program awarded funds to the SCTI Adults with Disabilities Program to form the Coupon Clipper Club, where students learn how to budget and save money while practicing skills for everyday life by searching for and using coupons from newspapers, magazines and the Internet.
Adult With Disabilities (AWD) students have embarked on a new challenge and community service project by joining Warm Up America One Square at a Time! This project is sponsored by the Warm Up America! Foundation and members of the Craft Yarn Council of America.
