Spectrum Innovates Pathway Program: Spring Curriculum


Course Description

Program Description The Spectrum Innovates Pathway Program (SIPP) was created to “address the autistic community’s employment crisis and the forecast[ed] shortage of technicians in the aeronautics industry over the next twenty years.” SIPP is a “prototypal transition pathway program for those on the autism spectrum who share a common passion for aeronautics.” The primary goals of this program are to prepare students for success in higher education and to enter the workforce in advanced technician roles. This program is a partnership between NPF Nexus and Vaughn College of Aeronautics and Technology. The program runs for 12 months. There is a 6-week orientation, two academic semesters, and a 6-week residency experience. Collection Description This collection is composed of documents for the SIPP spring semester. The spring semester provides opportunities for students to reflect on the SEL practices that they learned about in past semesters. New SEL concepts are also introduced. Workforce readiness, daily living skills, and preparation for the 6-week residency in summer 2 are also covered in the spring semester.
