SkillBridge Program

About SkillBridge

Bridging the gap

SkillBridge is designed for people that challenged by breaks in instruction, most significantly summer break. Designed to meet the needs of people of all ages, this intensive program is built to maintain and enhance skills during the summer break.

Items to Consider

It is feasible for people to lose skills over breaks in instruction. Intensive interventions like SkillBridge support maintenance and often enhance and develop skills. Participants will receive 18 hours of intervention in total. This model offers one-to-one instruction plus an opportunity for skill generation each day. Interventionists are happy to work with your current team to develop a program specific to your individualized needs. 

The DeWit RiteCare is a student training facility. Students are supervised and educated by professionals and offer high-quality services.
