How I Use CEC's Online Transition Curriculum to Support Students
If you are looking for an all-in-one online curriculum related to transition, then CEC’s Life Centered Education (LCE) is the program for you!
Our public school consortium serves over 1,500 special education students throughout eight districts in the Hampton Roads area of Southeastern Virginia. We have been using LCE for almost ten years to supplement school-to-work based transition goals.
Currently, we have 38 teachers and 75 students participating in LCE. Teachers are reporting that they like LCE because it covers a wide range of transition related topics and offers both qualitative and quantitative assessments related to adult living.
The online lesson plans are systematically laid-out and highly structured, making them ideally suited for both virtual and classroom instruction. Each lesson plan includes supplemental internet activities and optional student worksheets – all in one place – eliminating the constant scramble for content.
As a transition specialist, I’d say LCE’s big plus is that it gives teachers the ability to control and customize this proven life skills curriculum in order to individualize instruction.
