Fullstream: Empowerment for Life.
Deubner, Sharon; And Others
The Fullstream Project is a transition support system which focuses on including students who are 18-21 years old with moderate to severe disabilities at Collin County Community College in Texas. The project's vision is that the community college will become a lifelong center for growth and fellowship for individuals with disabilities. Fullstream Project students have the opportunity to expand their horizons in age-appropriate environments by exploring academic and recreational activities on the college campus. Students with disabilities are paired with student mentors who help them attend integrated college classes; who assist in class group work, homework, and social skill activities inside and outside of class; and who advocate for their "paired" student. Class work is modified and adapted by a certified special education teacher/inclusion facilitator. Students with disabilities are also working in the competitive work force with the support of job coaches and job developers. This conference presentation offers the project philosophy, objectives, admission and registration procedures, an outline of differences between high school and college, issues faced in project implementation, facilitator issues, student issues, student mentor issues, sample individualized education plans, and various forms used in project administration.
