Living & Learning

Living & Learning focuses on developing skills of independence in the home and workplace.

Kentucky Living & Learning

Living & Learning often includes sessions where DSL’s supported employment team teaches workplace skills. Lessons cover topics that include how to get a job, gain more responsibilities, increase task independence, and more.

Students benefit from small-group interaction, role-playing, videos, demonstrations, and class discussion. The hands-on portion of the sessions, members’ favorite part of the program, includes cooking classes for students to prepare and clean up healthy snacks and meals using kitchen utensils and appliances, or crafts and projects to spark creativity and expression. Communication is also a large portion of the sessions, in which members are encouraged to engage with each other, staff, and volunteers in team-building and social games.

Kentucky Living & Learning:  Meets three Monday nights each month from 5 – 6 pm at the DSL Kentucky Campus.

Indiana Living & Learning

This program hosts weekly life skills training with the ultimate goal to make each participant more independent inside and outside of the home. A monthly topic is chosen, and four classes are conducted around that core concept. Each of the four classes covers the chosen topic from one of the four angles, which we refer to as the “4C’s”. Cooking, Cleaning, Community, and Communication.

Using hands-on activities, role-playing, group brainstorming, and activities in a real-world setting, participants in this program gain the skills and confidence they need to achieve their lifelong independence. There is no cost for this program.

Indiana Living & Learning: Meets at our Indiana campus on Thursdays from 6:30-7:30 pm (followed by Boogie Down Crew practice from 7:30-8:00 pm)
