This morning representatives from Project SearchIvyMount School, and SEEC kicked off a two-day orientation about the Project Search Transition Progam, a on-year internship program for students with cognitive disabilities in their last year of high school. The program offers students total immersion in the workplace and facilitates the learning process as well as the acquisition of marketable, transferable, and competitive work skills.

Project Search has been introduced to the Smithsonian particularly through the efforts of Senior Program Officer Dianne Niedner and Accessibility Program Director Beth Ziebarth.
