JWC hosts annual Fall Parent Tour

JWC hosts annual Fall Parent Tour
Posted on 12/15/2017

The Jewel Wietzel Center recently took parents on a tour of different day habilitation centers and sheltered workshops throughout San Antonio.

“We have found that many parents are not aware of what the options are for their son or daughter after they finish their time at the Jewel Wietzel Center,” JWC Special Education Teacher Luis Semidey said. “So every fall and spring, we utilize district vans and take a tour of some of their options.”

The day habilitation centers they visited included The Arc of San Antonio and Mission Road Ministries. Sheltered workshops they visited included The Unicorn and Texas Foundation of Hope. 

After the tour, JWC staff took the parents to Pizza Hut for lunch. They debriefed with the parents to get their opinions of the different options and they were able to express what they feel was the best option for their son or daughter.

“Overall, it was a successful trip, and we look forward to doing it again in the spring,” Semidey concluded.
