YAP's SudZ N' DudZ

Hillsdale County ISD
Hillsdale, MI

Young Adult Special Education Transition Program

The students in Ms. Monahan's young adult program will be providing a laundry service for classrooms within their school. Classes will be able to bring their laundry to SudZ N' DudZ where students will be there to greet them and collect the laundry, wash, dry, and fold the clothing, and then deliver clean garments back to their owners. Two students will be assigned to each job to boost collaboration and communication and help cover one another in the event of an absence.

About the Digitability Work Simulation Program

Digitability believes that skills are best learned through real-world experience and application. That’s why Digitability created the Work Simulation Program: a complete curriculum that teaches work-ready skills in a hands-on way you won’t find anywhere else.

After choosing their classroom’s Work Simulation project, students are “hired” for jobs and begin practicing workplace behavior, managing tasks, using tech skills for independence, self-advocating, self-regulating and more. 

Digitability Work Simulations include Bankability, a virtual banking and workplace behavior program where students earn virtual dollars when they exhibit behaviors that will make them successful in the workplace and increase their independence. Using those dollars earned, students experience a modern banking app while learning the fundamentals of budgeting concepts such as earning, spending, and saving.
