  • Working Toward Independence

    Through the "Working Toward Independence" project, Special Education students at AHS develop a variety of skills leading to more independence both in the home and community. They plan meals, grocery shop, and cook as well as eat out at restaurants. The positive outcomes for students and families in terms of increased independence, self-esteem, and more meaningful participation in home and community life has been amazing.
