Transition Programs for Students with Disabilities

Erinoak Kids Independent Living Program (ILP)

The Erinoak Kids Independent Living Program (ILP) teaches youth with physical disabilities how to take charge of their own lives. Participants spend 13 days living in a college residence, where they have the opportunity to learn the skills that are required to live on their own.

While at camp, participants learn practical skills such as grocery shopping, meal planning, and cleaning. In addition, participants set individualized goals, such as learning to direct attendant services, visiting post secondary education institutions and learning how to budget money. The atmosphere is fun and supportive, yet educational. Participants are encouraged to make their own decisions and choices independently in a safe, realistic and supportive environment.
