Open House for CCDEL Set Aug. 19

Published on: August 03, 2009

Lone Star College-CyFair will host an open house Wednesday, Aug. 19 to share information on a unique and enriching program for developmentally disabled adults.

The College of Careers and Development for Exceptional Learners (CCDEL) is designed to meet the needs of motivated developmentally disabled adults who wish to further their education beyond a high school level.

In an effort to foster social and financial independence and to enrich learning and personal experiences on campus, CCDEL not only offers certificate programs, but a student organization as well.

All CCDEL courses are tailored to provide students exceptional workforce training skills that can be utilized for employment.

Several certificate programs are available including Customer Service and Office Skills. New certificate options will be available starting in Spring 2010.  All CCDEL students must take core courses, such as Social Skills, College 101, Study Skills and Reading Lab I, before enrolling into one of these certificate programs.

The CCDEL Club promotes community citizenship on and off-campus. Students are involved in helping the community, participating in local events and educating others about disability awareness.

Meet the CCDEL staff and learn about the admission process at the open house from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. in the Technology Building, rooms 101-102 on the Barker Cypress campus at 9191 Barker Cypress.
