All parents worry about their children’s future when and if something should happen to them. In “broken families”, the custodial parent often tends to worry even more.
But for no parent is that worry greater than the parent of a special needs child.
The College Living Experience, sponsored by the Educational Services of America, is working on alleviating that worry in a unique way.
Simply put, the program facilitates special needs children attending college.
The program houses special needs college students together in apartments where they can deliver tutoring, independent living skills training, social outings and psychological support services.
The program operates in several major cities, including neighboring Fort Lauderdale.
