Adult Basic Education Foundations

ABE Foundations is an academic program specifically for adults with intellectual disabilities. The program features lessons in community living, consumer education, health, language, mathematics, social science, and vocational education. Emphasis is placed on helping each student become as independent as possible, primarily by improving academic and vocational skills.

Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) classes are provided to improve and enhance the skills of adult survivors of traumatic brain injuries. Classes focus on memory, social, and time-management skills as well as community living, consumer education, health, language, and math.

A-B Tech's ABE Foundations program received the Excellence in Leadership award in 2006. Tom Rash accepted the award on behalf of the program from Mayor Terry Bellamy at a reception hosted by the Mayor's Committee for Citizens with Disabilities.
