Courses for Young Adults with Developmental Disabilities

Continuing Education is responding to a need in the community for classes designed for young adults with mild to moderate developmental disabilities. These courses will complement other offerings within College of DuPage. A student does not have to reside in District 502 to attend. Classes can be taken multiple times as new information is introduced.

These courses are designed for 21- to 40-year-old developmentally disabled students who conduct themselves appropriately in a classroom situation and who can independently and safely find their way to classes. (No transportation will be provided.) Classes are limited to 3 to 12 students. For course details and to register, call (630) 942-2208.
