Our unique Independent Living Skills Program is designed to provide daily training in living skills for students 13–15 years old, as well as awareness training for youths 16–21 years old. This training takes the form of on-campus seminars and workshops to assist students in their efforts to develop the skills that will enable them to successfully navigate adult living situations and gain employment.
Upon admission, students take the Casey Skills Assessment Test, which determines their current aptitude in living skills and is administered by a social worker on campus. A plan is then created based on the outcome of the assessment. Our staff will provide training opportunities to assist them in achieving their goals and objectives at the appropriate target dates by engaging in various learning exercises and activities, as well as opportunities to reassess independent living skills.
