CCU LIFE Program hosts info reception for parents

February 19, 2010

Parents interested in learning more about Coastal Carolina Universitys LIFE (Learning Is For Everyone) Program, a four-year post-secondary program for 18- to 24-year-old students with learning disabilities, are invited to a Parent Information Reception scheduled for Wednesday, Feb. 24 at 5:30 p.m. at Baxley Hall (second floor) on the CCU campus.

The LIFE Program is designed to promote a smooth and effective transition from secondary schools to a four-year higher education institution, as well as provide post-secondary opportunities on a college campus for students with intellectual disabilities. The program provides students with intellectual disabilities the educational and social development opportunity to address four key primary areas: academic enrichment, socialization, independent living skills, and competitive or supported employment. This program will allow the students full inclusion within the campus community, as well as provide supportive and developmentally appropriate scheduling, coursework and guidance to assure the student's success.

To RSVP contact CCUs Biddle Center for Teaching, Learning and Community Engagement at 843-349-2665 or e-mail biddlecenter@coastal.edu.
