Our methods? Task analysis, standardized assessments, and work-station specific protocols. When students receive instruction in the lab, they are encouraged to take emotional risks; to examine patterns and conflicts within relationships, and to express emotions from past disappointments and trauma. How do we operate on a shoestring 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.
