Korean Parent Support Group Visits Taft College
Lanterman's newest Family Support Specialist Jamie Cha-McGrath organized a trip for nine parents from the Korean Parent Support Group in mid-October to Taft College to check out the school's Transition to Independent Living (TIL) Program.
She shares, "Parents wanted to know about college options for their child with special needs, so I arranged the trip." Parents toured the campus and were able to see the dorms, an activity room, classrooms, laundry facility, cafeteria, campus library, and also where cooking classes are taught.
Three Lanterman clients from Jamie's previous caseload as a service coordinator are currently attending the College.
