College Transition Programs

LINKS and the Mat-Su Borough School District are collaborating to offer parents a training and orientation program for families seeking an innovative college-based transition program.
 
On Monday, February 8, 2016, 6:00-7:00 pm, at Finger Lake Elementary School, a representative from Shepherds College, Union Grove, Wisconsin, will discuss their college program for individuals who have completed four years of high school and have an intellectual disability and need future training in functional academics, life skills, relationship skills, and career opportunities.
 
University of Alaska, Anchorage
 
In March 2016 (date to be determined), LINKS and the Mat-Su Borough School District will sponsor a presentation about the University of Alaska, Anchorage, Tapestry Postsecondary Transition Program for students (ages 18 to 21) with intellectual and cognitive disabilities. Tapestry is a post-secondary college experience to develop self-advocacy skills, engage in career exploration, and develop social skills that lead to employment in a career field or enrollment in a postsecondary educational program.
 
If you are interested please RSVP with LINKS at 373-3632. Hope to see you there.

Part D Open Enrollment Schedule

We will be having enrollment event throughout the valley, from Talkeetna to Sutton. Check out the flyer for exact dates and times for a location near you. If you don’t see one that works for you, please call us 373-3632 and we will either set up one closer or we can meet you at our office. We can’t stress enough how important this is. Last year one senior we worked with would have had to pay more than $4,000 for a medication that was dropped from her plan. Instead she switched plans and got a necessary medication. For most seniors the only time you can change plans is during the open enrollment. If you have any questions or want to set up an appointment, please call us at 373-3632.
