Basic Skills for Adults with Dev. Disabilities

The Basic Academic Skills for Adults with Developmental Disabilities course is a free noncredit course offered by MiraCosta College. This course focuses on increasing academic skills and the ability to connect these skills with real life situations faced by adults with developmental and intellectual disabilities. Through individual projects, small group work, large group instruction and discussion, students work in areas of reading, writing, speaking, mathematics, basic computer applications, health and physical education, and over all problem solving.


New students must apply for admission in order to obtain a Student ID number. Once admission is complete, they are required to make an intake appointment with Disabled Student Programs & Services at 760-795-6658.

Returning students and new students (once the intake is completed) may register for the class of their choice at the Community Learning Center. The class schedules are listed online and in the Continuing Education Schedule. Enrollment is free and is on a first come, first served basis. The classes fill up very quickly and are closed once the maximum enrollment is met.
