"Tell me and I'll forget;
Show me and I may remember;
Involve me and I'll understand."
Students age out of public school at 21. And in Tulsa County, OK, there is nowhere for adults with severe-profound disabilities to find community and stimulation.
Other adult care programs require clients to be mobile and or out of diapers, which excludes people with profound needs. For these overlooked individuals, the only options are to sit alone at home or to go into a nursing home with the elderly. Their quality of life and the skills they had learned quickly begin to degrade.
In 2020, JTTW will open The Joy Learning Academy which will offer learning opportunities to engage the body, mind, and spirit in a joyful, loving and supportive community.

JTTW’s vision is to establish and eventually expand a tertiary institution called The Joy Learning Academy. The Academy is specifically designed to continue the education, skill training and learning experiences of young adults with severe multiple disabilities. It provides a program which engages the body, mind and spirit in a joyful, loving and supportive community. This vision will support families and mutually promote awareness between Joys To The World, Inc. and the surrounding community.
With this initiative, our goal is to promote great opportunities for individuals with severe/profound multiple disabilities. With an individualized and modified designed curriculum, these individuals can become empowered by their own abilities and gain the confidence to fulfill their full potential.
