The focus of LifeWorks at WKU is the transition into independent living, securing employment and engaging in community & leisure activities for autistic students. We have a limited number of spots available. If you’d like to be on the list or to learn more information, enter your email address below.
LifeWorks at WKU’s vision is to create an inclusive community where autistic individuals learn to lead fulfilling and self-directed lives.
Bridging Gaps and Building Relationships with autistic individuals as we live, work, relax, and relate as valued community members.
Students will learn to achieve independence through assistance with functional living skill development. Counselors will be on site to assist with areas of need.
Vocational skills will be assessed and developed so participants can identify and maintain employment of their choice in an appropriate work setting.
Mentors will be assigned to each participant to determine their interests and needs, so that, with support, they can fully engage in their communities.
Participants will engage in education about skills necessary for meaningful relationships at home, in the workplace and in the community.
