Individuals with Autism learning to cook and live independently


Embracing independence

It’s our goal that, upon completion of the Gersh Experience, our students go on to live independent and fulfilling lives. To help students transition to life on their own, we develop an independent living plan customized to each individual’s learning style.

Building confidence

Student apartments are conveniently located near public transportation—ensuring students learn to navigate the public transportation system safely and with ease.

Important life skills, such as managing money and paying bills, grocery shopping, meal preparation, laundry and cleaning, are part of every plan.


Students learn important life skills like…



Managing money and paying bills


Grocery shopping and meal preparation


Cleaning and laundry



Support for every step

Most students will be learning these necessary life skills for the first time. We work with each student at his or her own pace and provide support until the student has mastered the skills necessary to live independently.
