Community Integration

AchieveKids is committed to providing an education that supports positive community interactions. Before coming to AchieveKids, many students have had very limited contact with people outside their family and teachers. Our program provides students with the foundation they need for successful integration in the community and also assists the community at large by accepting and understanding the challenges that our students face.

• INDEPENDENCE

Our staff work with students to generalize functional academics in the community. Grocery shopping, eating in restaurants, and using public transportation encourage students to practice their skills with members of the community.

• TOLERANCE AND SELF RELIANCE

The opportunity to interact with the outside world is an invaluable learning tool; for the students, and for the community. Community integration helps us all develop knowledge and tolerance, while students build a greater sense of independence and self-esteem.

“For the first time ever, we can let him leave our home and spend the night at a friend's home. This would not have happened without the loving support & education that AchieveKids offers.”
