Our OT Labs infuse academic content and social-emtional learning with current trends in design and manufacturing. We recognize the vital link between mental wellness and vocational preparedness . Our practices are intentional, ambitious, occupation-centered, and anchored in research!

OUR METHODS? Task analysis, standardized assessments, skills training/problem solving, and work-station specific protocols. We encourage our students to take emotional risks, feel on-purpose, and create patterns of behavior that in alignment with chosen values. 

HOW DO WE OPERATE ON A SHOE-STRING BUDGET? We work with local businesses who donate beautiful stone, wood and fabric, allowing us to promote entrepreneurship, sustainability, vocational skill development, and personal growth.
