Successful Learning Center
The Successful Learning Center was created to allow adults with developmental disabilities to have an experience similar to college, that many might not be able to have on their own. The SLC typically holds class on college campuses, promoting community integration, and giving our clients insights on campus life. This fosters independence and an increased sense of accomplishment and self worth. SLC instructors also hold classes at the New Concepts Achievement Center. With the help of the SLC, our clients learn about Current Events, Math, History, Political Science, communication, creative writing and more.
