LINCOLN, Neb. (KMTV) — Nebraska Transition College is working together with Southeast Community College (SCC) to offer specialized skills-development courses for those with autism and other disabilities.

The transition college helps empower individuals with disabilities to learn, work, and live within our communities, a press release from Nebraska Transition College says.

"Soft Skills to Pay The Bills" and "Unlocking Your Best Self" are the first two classes -- a first step in building a three-year, comprehensive curriculum created to enhance living, social, and work skills.

“It’s the only one of its kind in Nebraska,” said Dr. Stuart Stofferahn, executive director of Nebraska Transition College.

According to a press release from the Nebraska Transition College, the classes fall under the non-credit continuing education component of the organization.

Both classes meet on Thursday evenings on the Southeast Community College campus at 88th and O St. in Lincoln.

The college is working to expand the class offerings, with its sights set on four classes in the fall as SCC starts its 2019-2020 school year.
