Independent Living

  •  
    The Transition Program develops skills in Independent Living differentiated to each student's unique needs, abilities, and future goals.  Through classroom instruction, community-based instruction, guided practice, and reflection, students learn and build skills in the following areas of Independent Living: personal care, nutrition and food preparation, health and wellness, home living, recreation and leisure, choosing and accessing transportation, community access, economic concepts and money management, current events, and citizen responsibility.  Within these areas, the program supports students to promote independence and strengthen functional academic skills, social emotional skills, communication skills, self-advocacy and self-determination skills, and problem-solving skills.
     
    Although the Transition Program is currently participating in remote learning, the students continue to work on these skills in virtual opportunities.
