ACT Objectives

  • The ACT program provides students the opportunity to acquire appropriate Daily Living and Independent Living skills in a community-based setting.  The expectation is that students will live, work, shop, and play in integrated environments in the community.  Students learn to make good purchases, cook, clean and do other daily living tasks and skills.  Students participate, independently or with accommodations and supports, in typical activities across a variety of settings.
