An Innovative Cutting-Edge Approach

Research shows that students with learning differences achieve the greatest levels of success when enrolled in individualized programs that address their unique strengths and challenges.

Improving upon the national trends and the patterns established in schools and programs prior to enrollment at the College Internship Program requires a curriculum that addresses best practice and, in some cases, a cutting-edge approach.

With the insights provided by our Founder, Dr. Michael McManmon, our CIP Professional Advisory Board, and by utilizing research-based approaches across many key domains within transition services, we have created a program that comprehensively addresses student needs for best possible outcome.

CIP students receive unparalleled support and guidance as they work their way through the program. Our program is also one that is constantly evolving as more is understood about learning differences and autism spectrum disorders.
