Individualized MBTA Training

Good weather is here, so community skill building is upon us. Here at the LABBB Transition Program we strive to connect all of the pieces for our students to function independently as possible. Transportation to and from work  is one of those pieces. So, to accomplish this goal, we take our transportation lesson to the students very own neighborhood!

Our first individualized trip was Traveling from Arlington to Burlington via MBTA bus.

Goal: Replicate specific future home to work transportation.
Method: Students learn the specific bus route/schedule by their house. Park at their house and walk to the bus stop. Ride the bus to the Burlington Mall (Possible future job location). Practice time management, OTC medication identification and phone skills. Return back to student’s home via bus.
Result: Success!

Please enjoy our trip pictures.
