FORT LAUDERDALE – Flour Bluff Independent School District (ISD) today announced its implementation of CentralReach’s avail® platform to support individuals with autism and intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD) as they transition from high school to accomplish goals related to pre-employment, job readiness, and independent living. This innovative, digital solution will be incorporated into Flour Bluff’s Pre-Employment and Training Services program to help individuals build confidence as they work to achieve independence at work.
“avail by CentralReach is an incredibly beneficial tool that helps special education teachers create customized content to meet the individual learning needs of each student,” said Meghan Jones, teacher and transition coordinator at Flour Bluff Independent School District. “Our goal is to provide our students with autism and developmental disabilities with the skills they need to reach their full potential.”
Flour Bluff ISD is a public school district based in Corpus Christi, Texas. The district serves the Flour Bluff area of Corpus Christi, as well as high school students from the Naval Air Station, Corpus Christi Army Depot on North Padres Island.
At a time when 85 percent of adults with autism are unemployed, the avail solution brings valuable impact to the autism and IDD workforce community in addition to helping teachers deliver and meet students' goals. The interactive software simplifies task analysis and provides remote support with step-by-step digital instructions to help individuals master work-related and day-to-day tasks.
“We are thrilled to provide Flour Bluff ISD with a way to help prepare and equip individuals with disabilities with the necessary skills as they transition from high school to employment,” said Lisa Marie Clinton, managing director of avail Support at CentralReach. “Leveraging CentralReach’s avail tool can enhance and augment the team at Flour Bluff ISD to provide extended teaching opportunities for those students who require additional needs, supporting these students and their families in their journey towards achieving increased autonomy in all aspects of their lives.”
