Living & Learning
Kentucky Living & Learning
Living & Learning focuses on developing skills of independence in the home and workplace. During the first hour 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 second hour is members favorite part of the program, a cooking class for students to prepare and clean up healthy snacks and meals using kitchen utensils and appliances.
The third hour is a communication class in which members are encouraged to engage with each other, staff and volunteers in team-building and social games.
There is no cost for this program.
In-Person Living & Learning is back and will now meet in person ONLY. To ensure Living & Learning is a space where everyone can share and engage equally, classes will be capped at 12 individuals. If you are interested in participating in KY Living & Learning, please contact Cathy Palmer to get started.

This program hosts weekly life skills training with the ultimate goal to make each participant more independent inside and outside of home. A monthly topic is chosen, and four classes are conducted around that core concept. Each of the four classes cover 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 the 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.
