Ai Academy / Curriculum
Ai Academy’s Daily Living Skills class teaches laundry skills, personal hygiene, home cleaning, domestics cleaning, basic cooking, health and fitness. Students complete tasks repetitiously in order to learn and retain the information. To assist with learning health and fitness, Ai Academy students join the local gym and exercise weekly. They also run a student café every Thursday by preparing snacks and drinks, counting money, and interacting with peers.
The Social Skills class focuses primarily on learning emotions, community living, friendship, conversation skills, first impressions, boundaries, safety, and team building. Students identify emotions daily and work to develop healthy relationships with peers. They also volunteer their time around campus with cleaning, watering plants, and serving the café to staff and students in order to build community involvement.
