Life Skills Development

Our Transition Program is designed to provide comprehensive vocational and life skills training to all Anderson Center students. Fundamental skills such as sequencing, following directions and completing tasks are practiced in a pre-vocational setting.

Our on-campus Life Skills room simulates an apartment where students work on daily living, meal preparation, household, and laundry skills. Students ages 12 and older participate in on-campus job training opportunities that can include delivery, clerical, custodial, and food service fields. Older students participate in community job training that is focused on developing independent work behaviors and increasing post-secondary school opportunities.

I chose Anderson Center for my son after touring numerous schools in the tri-state area. It was clearly the best fit. I was enchanted with the way the staff interacted with the students. The Children’s Program is a safe, good, instructional program for him and the Anderson Center team loves him just like a family member.
