An Adult Basic Education Class
Adults with developmental disabilities in Moore and Hoke Counties are served through Sandhills Community College’s SUCCEED classes. Classes are offered on both Sandhills’ main campus in Pinehurst, the Hoke Center campus in Raeford, and additional off-site locations.
As part of our College and Career Readiness program, this Adult Basic Education class is designed to teach adults with developmental disabilities essential academic and life skills. The primary focus is to better equip students to become more independent and to enable them to live successful lives in their community.
A number of subjects are covered in the program. Through language arts, students are exposed to phonics, sight words, basic grammar, learning their address and phone number, and library skills. Math and consumer education teaches students how to count and manage money, shopping skills and simple cooking techniques. Students develop computer skills and explore career options through vocational health, and health courses teach them about proper hygiene, nutrition and stress management. Opportunities for exploration of arts and humanities are also provided.
As a class offered by Sandhills Community College, we share the college’s commitment to integrity, helpfulness, excellence, respect, and opportunity. These core values guide us as we strive to provide an environment where our students feel safe and have a sense of community. We work to raise our students’ sense of independence, and in turn, raise their self-esteem and contribution to the community.
