C.O.O.R. Educational Center
The C.O.O.R. Educational Center (CEC) is an educational institution providing specialized services to Moderately Cognitively Impaired, Severely Multiply Impaired, Autistic and Severely Cognitively Impaired students in the C.O.O.R. service area. The CEC provides services for 82 to 87 students per year through six different programs.
Programs for Severely Cognitively Impaired and Multiply Impaired students are divided into two classes: Primary, ages 4 to 15 and Secondary, ages 16 to 26. Programs for the Moderately Cognitively Impaired are divided into five classes: Primary Programs, ages 4 to 11, Intermediate, ages 11 to 13, Secondary, ages 14 to 19 and adult ages 19 to 26. The Primary and Secondary programs are housed in the Center while the adult students are based in a classroom located in downtown Roscommon.
Students attending the centralized programs at the CEC participate in educational programming based on a functional skills curriculum. In keeping with the functional skills curriculum concept, the purpose of the educational process at the Center is to facilitate the students’ success in the larger community. The CEC experience provides an extensive set of age appropriate community based education experiences focusing on hands-on participation.
Classroom programming includes the development of communication skills, socialization skills, physical education, pre-vocational education and vocation education.
Students in the Adult Transition Program, based in Roscommon, are provided with a very intense set of community based training experiences designed to provide a coordinated set of activities between the school and adult service providers. These activities include pre-vocational training, work study, integration of community skills, assistance in developing an adult living plan, referral to agencies such as Michigan Rehabilitation Services, Community Mental Health and other public or private agencies that assist the student.
