Most, not all, of our students have already met their academic requirements at their home school. They attend CL 1/2 a day and their vocational program the other ½. Some students attend the program for 1 semester while others stay the entire year.
Our goal is for every student to make progress and be able to improve in their level of independence whether they live with their parents, a group home or by themselves.
At the house, we learn how to budget our money, clean, plan meals, cook, do laundry, sew/iron, organize, do basic home and yard maintenance. Students are given homework to transfer their skills at their home.
Almost every day the job trainer or I take our students out in the community. We go to the grocery store, the bank, the library, Target, depending on the theme of that week. We have guest speakers or classes, such as ; Mayfield firemen and police officer talk about safety , Home Depot about home maintenance, Metro parks for landscaping, Charter One about banking. We visit an apartment complex and have a former student talk about her experience of living on her own. We visit Hillcrest Hospital to learn how to find a Doctor’s office and the proper etiquette when visiting a loved one. We eat a meal at a restaurant to practice our communication, money (tipping) and table manners.
We have daily group discussions on topics such as how to get along with roommates to how to correctly store food. We practice a daily money activity.
We host parties and discuss how to plan recreational activities.
