Upon admission, students are provided a Student Living Orientation presentation that introduces them to the unique aspects of living at ACTI.
ACTI maintains supervised dormitory facilities that include a cafeteria, laundry room and student union. Most dorm rooms are duel occupancy with bed, desk, dresser and nightstand, and all rooms contain a sink. Linens are provided by ACTI and a scheduled routine of Activities of Daily Living Skills is followed. Males and females are housed in separate areas. Each floor contains a lobby area with a TV for social interaction and relaxation. College students, medically fragile students, and students under the age of 21 are housed separately.
Each dormitory area is staffed by a Residential Care Technician who is on duty after regular business hours and resides in an apartment in the dormitory area. The RCT also provides residents with pertinent information such as medical appointments or other training- related or family/guardian communications.
The Dormitory Living Program provides students an opportunity to learn and practice interpersonal skills that will serve them well in life as well as in the workplace.
