Limited Capacity seats available

Our project is the Sugar Rush Bakery, which is a student led venture that provides our 18-21 year old students identified with cognitive and physical disabilities functional, vocational skills where real life economic experiences are taught and learned through weekly planning, purchasing, baking, selling and accounting of home-made bakery items. Every student is incorporated into this project regardless of personal limits. It is my belief that every individual has something to contribute to this Bakery and it is our job to play up those talents to their fullest potential. We will present the successes and sustainability of our project over the past 4 years which includes receiving 2 separate grants totaling $3000.00 from a professional standpoint as well as the impact this program has on students, families, and the community in which it affects. By the end of the session, participants will be able to identify Resources for Grant Writing; increase knowledge of assistive technology and adaptations available to individuals with significant needs; identify cost-free , creative promotional web resources; taste quality home-made peanut free bakery items; gain ideas for simplifying instruction; gain information on behavioral supports for including individuals with the most challenging behaviors.
