Raytown resident develops college program for students with special needs

An article on the front page of today’s Kansas City Star describes a new program developed by Raytown resident Joyce Anderson Downing, Ph.D. and her colleagues at the University of Central Missouri (UCM) in Warrensburg. During the summer of 2009, Downing met with members of board of the nonprofit agency, Expanding College for Exceptional Learners (EXCEL). After six months of collaborative planning, and funded by a nearly $500,000 grant from EXCEL, Downing and THRIVE program staff are reviewing applications for fall 2010. A cohort of 10-12 college-aged students with intellectual, cognitive, and developmental disabilities will be selected to live on the UCM campus, participate in a learning community, and further develop their functional academic, social and life skills.

Although the original application deadline was June 15, Downing says they will continue to accept applications until June 30th to accommodate those who may not have heard of the program prior to publication of the Star article.
