Welcome to Arkansas State University!

Community Living Skills

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 the following:

  • 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 transitional support through online meetings, seminars, 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 home, social networks and community.
