UPDATED: October 13, 2021

The InFlight Skills Academy is an innovative online skills training program designed with neurodiverse learners in mind! Learn about independent living, vocational, and social skills online at the InFlight Skills Academy!

Online learning has become common in education, and for good reason: it offers learners the flexibility to learn at their own pace, allows the learner to schedule class time around their busy schedules, provides access to those in rural areas or with limited access to transportation, uses technology to make the content more accessible (such as closed captioning, audio, visual, recorded seminars, multi-modal assignments and more), and provides the “quiet learner” the opportunity to be heard. Average class sizes range anywhere from 6-15 and are capped at 20 so students get to enjoy the perfect balance of meaningful student-student and teacher-student interactions. Adjoin is offering this unique post-secondary programming designed with neurodiverse learners in mind but open to all learners!

Classes are:
- Online: self-paced and live on Zoom
- Accessible: feature many ways to participate
- Independent: take class anywhere, anytime! All you need is a device, internet access, and about 4 hours per week
- 5 Weeks: Each course runs for 5 weeks, with each week focusing on its own topic
- Flexible: Learn at your own pace
- FUN: Earn badges, collect points, work your way up the leaderboard, and earn competency certificates as you go!
