Antilles High School Special Ed. Dept.
Fort Buchanan, Puerto Rico | October 4, 2018
Students in the moderate-severe special education program get an opportunity to participate in community training activities on a weekly basis. Places visited include shopping malls, postal offices, restaurants, train stations, museums, and movie theatres among others. During these community training outings, students get to practice the independent living skills taught in the classroom in a real-life setting. Sills practiced include, but are not limited to, managing money, making the change, locating a particular store in a shopping mall, locating restrooms, ordering from a menu, paying a restaurant bill and calculating the tip, selecting a movie and purchasing a movie ticket, etc. Exposure to these activities is significant since they assist students with their transition to post-secondary adult life.
