Welcome to Arkansas State University!

Community Living Skills

EduCare students will work towards gaining or improving the skills needed to safely and functionally participate in the instrumental activities of daily living. Transitional support will focus on:

  • Transportation resources and safety
  • Outline goals for independent living or increased independence within the current living situation
  • Educating students on home establishment
  • Household management
  • State and government requirements and responsibilities (taxes, driver’s license, etc.)
  • Developing routines that promote health and wellness
  • Home management
  • Independent shopping skills

Program administrators and mentors will address the domains listed above through online simulations, conversations, and scenario-based assessments between the student and their mentor. Goals will be set for the student and family/caregiver unit to practice within their own community based on recommendations and planning with the student’s mentor.
