Independent Living Skills

College is a time where a student is expected to become an adult. CLP supports its students in developing independent living skills that one needs to excel in college. Here are some of the skills we concentrate on at CLP:

  • Organization Skills
  • Time Management
  • Self-Advocacy
  • Accountability
  • Email Communication
  • Schedule Planning
  • Public Transportation

CLP offers independent-living coaching specific to the CLP students that choose to live on campus. Coaches will go to Housing and work with students on a variety of skills that include:

  • Daily Chores
  • Monitoring Student's Daily Self-Care
  • Planning for Safety Drills (i.e. mapping out fire escape route)
  • Socialization with Peers
  • Laundry
