The Work Skills Preparation Program at The College of New Jersey (WSP) is a 2-week residential summer program for CBVI high school students (ages 16 – 21) who may have additional disabilities such as cognitive, developmental, hearing, or mobility impairments. The goal of the program is to give students the opportunity to learn and/or enhance their skills to transition from school to a successful adult life which includes achieving competitive employment.

The WSP utilizes a curriculum and activities designed expressly to meet the educational, vocational, and developmental needs of the program participants.
Upon completion of the program, a written assessment is provided to support both the parents and schools inclusion of appropriate Transition goals in the student’s IEP.

Recommendations are made in the following assessment areas:
Job Site Experience & Job Sampling
Orientation and Mobility (travel skills)
Academics
Self-Advocacy and Self Determination
Person-Centered Planning and Goal Mapping
Accessible Technology
Skills of Independence (ILS)
