Research Update: Outcomes Study (Program Evaluation)

Here are some exciting updates on our Outcomes Study:

*  Surveys were sent to over 100 alumni provide perspective on what students learning under DLT® have achieved and maintained, and 62 surveys were returned.  

*  Findings show the majority live in community-based settings, are employed, have some independent daily living skills, exercise daily, engage in recreation and leisure, and feel happy about their lives.

*  Our most exciting finding is that the longer a student was enrolled at Higashi, the more likely he or she is to maintain employment after graduation. 

The results of the study were very positive, and are currently under review for publication. Stay tuned!
