The D'Vine Path Life I Can Program offers life skills training for high functioning adults on the spectrum, Asperger's Syndrome and other mild learning disabilities who have aged out of the high school (age 18 and over).
The students attend our 2 year long program training in life skills, self advocacy and empowerment through agriculture including viticulture, hospitality and the arts. The students learn proper life skills to help overcome barriers to promote a healthy and more balanced lifestyle through weekly expert guest speakers and off-site field trips to other farms, ranches and vineyards.
From our experience, one or two years is NOT enough time to help some students take social barriers down.
Students who exit our 2 year program now have the option to continue the program indefinitely in a concurrent class. Those who feel they don’t need D’Vine Path social training support anymore can ‘graduate’ in two years.
