​From Interdependence to Immersion to Independence (III)

                      

 Shelva's Help is a physical and cognitive skill strengthening program for high school graduates with with cognitive impairments seeking greater social awareness and operative post high school employment.  Appproximately 80% of persons are unemployed, with an additional 10% underemployed according to the Journal of the American Academy of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry.  Our goal is to help students transition to greater independence by building on their current safety, muscle memory and weight bearing skill set.  Students will be able to track their progress on tasks and apply their new safety skills at home, work and in their community.

Our program is designed to help students succeed and expand their expectations of themselves.  We believe our students’ drive comes from within themselves and once they experience success, they will repeat the process and strive for even greater heights.
