What is the ACAT Program?
Ala Costa’s Adult Transition Program [ACAT] is a non-profit organization which serves students ages 18-22 with developmental disabilities from the Berkeley Unified School District and North Region SELPA. ACAT is a community based program that focuses on self-determination skills, vocational skills, independent living skills, and community integration.
The ACAT program empowers students through a process of measurable, evidence based instruction immersed within community based experiences which provide opportunities for individuals to practice skills, gain experience, build self-esteem and gain self-efficacy. ACAT is a person-centered program guided by individual choice and interests. ACAT provides a safe space where students try new experiences with confidence and success as they work to find their place in the world.
