Students with disabilities proud of internship successes

Drew Lane inputs data into a computer at Atrium Medical Center in Middletown. Lane is participating in Project Search.
A hospital internship is helping Drew Lane, who has Asperger's syndrome, and more than a dozen of his classmates learn trades, such as data entry and cleaning, as well as on-the-job skills to make them more employable once they graduate. "When these students were in high school they were often the last person on the totem pole in their class. But here in this program they get to experience success and learn skills and you can just see their chests puff up with pride," said Tony Huff, who coordinates the program. The Cincinnati Enquirer
