Special needs students set to graduate from West Texas A&M University

West Texas A&M University has a unique program to help all students graduate. It's called 'Where the Learning Continues' and is designed to help students with special needs.

The four year program focuses on life skills, along with math, vocabulary, physical education and social skills.

Ross Sims is one student enrolled in this program who is set to graduate Saturday, May 11, 2013. "Graduating makes me feel good," says Sims.

After four years in the program, his father Randy Sims, says he is very proud to see his son complete his education.

"He's come a lot further than a lot of people said he would be able too and he's done it pretty well on his own," Sims says.

The 'Where the Learning Continues' program at WTAMU can accommodate up to ten special needs students a year. Currently, the program is accepting applicants for the fall semester.
