Applying to the Emerging Pathways Program

Penny just submitted her application for an “emerging pathways” program on a local University campus. She spent hours filling out the forms and working on short essays to describe her interest in the program and her goals for the future. We tour the school next week. It’s a program that would give her a lot of support, access to college classes for audit or credit, job training, and social connections with peers with and without intellectual disabilities.

There’s a waitlist for this program, so she may not get in. I hope she does, but if she doesn’t, we’ll apply again. We have time.

I don’t know what will happen for her next fall, but I do know that her future is filled with possibilities.
