The program is designed for students 16+ with autism, asperger's and/or a mild intellectual disability who are contemplating independent living (or assisted independent living). Focus will be on teaching students the skills to carry out activities of daily life required for independent living in a residential environment. Students will also acquire the social skills to help them navigate a residential building environment and acquire a taste of what living independently requires. The program will take place for a one-week period, Monday to Friday in the apartment from 9:30 to 3:00. This program includes our Food for Life Pillar as students will go out and practice grocery shopping skills, cook and eat nutritionally and economically. This is not a sleepover program.
This program is also a mobile program that is offered to remote communities who have difficulty traveling to Toronto. Please email for more details.
Program will also include recreational activities, swimming, and community exploration of amenities.
