Students also participate in community outings such as going to the Sarlin Community Library, the Liberty Post Office, Flat Rock Baptist Church, the Peace Center, Anderson Mall, McDonald's, Burger King, the Chinese Buffet, CVS, Winn-Dixie, Bi-Lo, Clemson Track for Special Olympics, Easley Cinema, the Only $1.00 Store, Wal-Mart, and Better Skills.
Self-Determination is a movement.
Individuals with disabilities and their families started this movement.
Transition is a life-long development from birth to late adult,
and self-determination begins at birth and never ends with an individual
who believes "I Can!"
The "I" Team consists of multi-classifications.
We believe everyone CAN reach their ultimate level of performance
and participate in the real world.
As we grow, we look forward to new challenges!
