Calling all students with intellectual and developmental disabilities and their families.

Join The Arc of New Jersey Family Institute for an information session at LACE (Learning At College Experience) at Sussex County Community College. The LACE Program is intended to assist adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities in an educational and social setting.

Emphasis is placed on maintaining and increasing social and academic skills, specifically in the following areas:
Life skills
Social skills
Language arts literacy
Social studies
Independent living skills

Students are assigned to different sections for academic purposes and join together at various times for group interaction and guest presenters. Electives are woven into the curriculum.

Students work in a classroom setting with instructors and assistants who have experience in the special education field. A certified Special Education teacher leads the program.

Students include those who have had an IEP while in public school, and the age ranges are from 17-60+. The students may live at home, in their apartment, or a group home.

If the student performs best with a one-on-one assistant, accommodations will need to be made by the parent/guardian for the student to participate in the program if it is deemed necessary.
