The OPTIONS team recommends students for participation in the Modified Program when they have demonstrated individual readiness through at least two semesters of successful participation in the Standard Program at OPTIONS.
Students in the Modified Program are expected to be more independently accountable for their academic, independent living and social progress. They enjoy living in the OPTIONS apartment setting, but have increased responsibilities in regard to self-management as well as more privileges and independence than students in the Standard Program. Students in the Modified Program continue to be involved in classes at OPTIONS, internship experiences and/or community college classes. The OPTIONS team continues to provide support, instruction and assistance as part of the Modified Program, while encouraging students to meet the responsibilities and enjoy the privileges of greater independence.
