Cooking up Success at Pulaski Tech

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. - A local college campus is helping observe Developmental Disabilities Awareness Month during March.

UA-Pulaski Tech has a special program called 3-D. It offers young adults with developmental disabilities the chance to get post-secondary education and prepare for employment.

Classes take place at UA-PTC's Culinary School in Little Rock, where students get hands-on experience in the kitchen, learning and exploring new skills.

"So one of my favorite things about the program is seeing our graduates go to work, but my second favorite thing about the program is watching our traditional students grow in how they interact with intellectual disabilities," says Chelsey Moore, Director of 3D Program.

"I really like the fact that the instructors in the program really take the time to work with you at your pace," says Cortlin Brown, Student.

Eleven students have graduated since the 3D Program started in 2013. Another dozen will graduate this spring.
