Special Needs Program Now Meets on CTX Campus

Concordia’s former campus off of I35 was host to the Rosedale Program operated by the Austin Independent School District. This program provided Concordia students with the opportunity to assist and become mentors for young adults with special needs. With the campus relocation to Northwest Austin, a new partnership has begun with Leander ISD’s special needs program, S.E.L.F. (Skills for Encouraging Lifelong Fulfillment). This program focuses specifically on preparing special needs students, ages 18 to 22, for their transition into adulthood. The group meets in Concordia's Student Lounge each morning, talking to other students and adults their age. As the program progresses, they gain vital skills in employment, independent living, recreation, and leisure. Concordia's Service-Learning program is also creating an opportunity for CTX students to volunteer and work with the special needs students.
