PAES® Article: MCIU Connection
Montgomery County, PA - May, 2011
"PAES® Lab Provides Real-Life Work Environment Montgomery County middle and high school students with disabilities can obtain job skills for the real world through a dynamic new curriculum that operates in a simulated work environment. The Practical Assessment Exploration System (PAES® Lab), located in Room 6 at the MCIU, provides students with the instructions and equipment to complete a variety of job tasks ranging from collating papers to making change at a cash register to assembling bolts and pipes.
"The MCIU’s job coach, Catharine Miller, works closely with students who enroll in the nine-week program. She assists students as they explore and learn new skills related to 264 jobs in five different work areas including:
“'The PAES® Lab mimics a real work environment to give students the soft and hard skills related to having a job,' said Cheryl Wise, MCIU Transition Supervisor. 'The simulated work day requires students to clock in, put their belongings away, find a file with work procedures related to job assignments,go to a work station and perform the task independently. The job coach then reviews their work and scores it for assessment. Currently, four Upper Dublin School District students are enrolled in the program. Staff are encorageed to stop by to check it out!'"
These Students are all part of MCIU's PAES® Transition Program.
