Instruction in independent living is highly individualized. Students learn and practice skills related to cooking, comparative shopping, personal hygiene, health, nutrition and fitness, stress management, home maintenance, transportation and the planning of independent recreational activities. While the routines and structure ensure that these important skills are learned, students at GROW play a very active role in designing and planning their lives.

GROW offers an inclusive environment where students utilize the community to maximize their independent living capabilities. Most graduates can expect to live in a place of their choice with friends or family, and in a community where they can work and socialize.
“I’m glad that I came to Riverview because I get to do a lot of activities. Riverview is different from my old school because I live in the dorm and have all of these friends. Now I believe in myself because I’ve been working hard and doing great.” -- Student
