Latham Works

Latham Centers prides itself in creating life-changing programs for our children with complex special needs, including Prader-Willi Syndrome, who call Latham home. Latham Centers’ staff make considerable efforts to prepare students at Latham School for life after graduation at 22 years of age.

How It Works

This involves coaching each student to be job-ready with skills including, but not limited to, craft making, horticulture, woodworking and soap making. Job readiness skills also include cash register abilities, sorting and assembly. Students in the Latham Works vocational program have truly excelled since the inception of this program and Latham Centers’ goal is to maintain 100% student employment.
