Welcome to MyCIL’s Transitional Skills Center. It’s the only facility of its kind in the area with simulated life settings for developing real-life skills. We empower students with all kinds of disabilities — ages 14-21 — to reach their independent living goals.
At the Transitional Skills Center, we serve students from school districts throughout Northeastern PA. In our state-of-the-art facility, students learn social, life and pre-employment skills through hands-on, real-life experiences. We feature a comprehensive, engaging daily schedule.
Your student can reach his or her life goals, whether that’s:
- Competitive Employment
- Integrated Employment
- Post-Secondary Education
- Self-Determination Skills, or Independent Living
When your student attends the TSC, they benefit from a personalized program. Our skilled facilitators and counselors work together to create an individualized program that’s designed specifically for your student’s unique needs, goals, strengths and challenges.
Working together, we’ll help your student reach his or her fullest potential. Our well-rounded curriculum will help your student develop key skills. Depending on your student’s goals, they can focus on work skills, social skills or independent living skills. Or a combination of all three.
Our program also includes community-based instruction. This is very beneficial for the students and school districts who need to comply with the “Least Restrictive Environment” Component of the IEP.
Your student will be out and about in the community, practicing their skills while developing new ones, including soft skills, such as socializing.
Another key component of our curriculum is Recreation & Wellness. Through engaging in physical activities, students improve their mental and physical well-being. In addition to these skill-building opportunities, your student also has the opportunity to have one-on-one sessions with our social worker on staff.
