SMSC Transitions to Serving Adults with Developmental Disabilities

Recognizing that the needs of preschool-age children with developmental disabilities were going to be met by the public school system, SMSC determined in 1972 to change its focus and transition its services to meet the needs of adults with developmental disabilities. Sr. Maxine Kraemer was instrumental in orchestrating this transition to services for adults and educating the community about the fact that SMSC was no longer a preschool. Once the focus changed, parents were thrilled to learn that SMSC was available to serve their adult children.

Once SMSC enrolled its first 12 adult students, Sr. Kraemer launched a four-pronged program that included:

Education - continuing math, reading, and basic education programs

Independent Living Skills

Pre-vocational training

Arts - dance, choral club, music appreciation, and visual arts

St Madeleine Sophie Center is looking to construct an outdoor kitchen to help serve and cater events and to instruct the students in aspects of food service and catering.
