Community Based Instruction CBI Program

Center for Advanced Transition Skills (CATS)

Center for Advanced Transition Skills (CATS) has been serving students with unique needs since 2001 on six different Los Angeles Community College campuses. 

CATS at East Los Angeles College has been active for more than ten years.  We work with students from nine high schools in the east area of LAUSD.  We train them to independently take the Metro bus and/or train from home to ELAC -- yes, students with developmental delays can learn to come to Monterey Park from as far as Eagle Rock and South Gate. 

Once they get to the ELAC, they take classes with the general student body, so that they can be educated with their non-disabled peers and experience higher learning environment. 

 Half a school day, these students take classes at ELAC; and, for the second half, they participate in Work-Based Learning program where they learn employable work skills in non-profit organizations or businesses in our community.  Our goal is to teach CATS students to be productive individuals and give back to our communities.   

 Our team members are:  Lisa Raffaelli, Marcella Deno, Silvia Lopez, Terry Jimenez, and Alfonso Garcia.
