CEES aims to create community integrated employment experiences that incorporate meaningful social interactions with peers and employers and provide families with the support to develop high expectations and actively engage in the transition process.
The anticipated impact of CEES is to change the Quality of Life (QoL) for individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities. Specifically, through CEES, students will develop the following skills associated with QoL:
- Employment skills necessary for integrated community work
- Social communication skills necessary for social interactions and soft skills for employment
