This curriculum was developed to provide quality pre-vocational skills in a small group setting to address skill topics listed in the CIE Group brochure. To date there is no evidenced based curriculum for training young adults with disabilities or with significant barriers to gain experience in learning core skills needed for employability. Groups have been in progress from 2012 to present. Through participant evaluations this project continues to reveal successful outcomes.
