Grades 6-8     

Is your student nervous about changing classes? Worried about making friends? Shy about using her magnifier in front of peers? Troubles to Triumphs is a weekend course designed to help students transform middle school worries into triumphs in a supportive environment.

Students will:

  • Learn about peers’ experiences starting the school year in their communities by conducting interviews with them
  • Identify ECC areas such as self-determination, assistive technology, and independent living skills that they would most like to focus on throughout the upcoming school year
  • Build “super strengths” in identified ECC areas to support learning and growth through participation in targeted activities
