Dixon House – Independent Living Skills Residence
The Indiana School for the Deaf continues to be a leader in programs for hearing impaired children. In 2002, a grant to construct and create a new teaching program for deaf children to learn and live in an “independent living” setting was funded. The first of three small dormitory houses was designed and constructed in 2005.
The new living and teaching house contains 5 sleeping rooms with the capacity for two students in each room. The house also includes living area, entertainment areas and a large teaching kitchen to allow students the opportunity to prepare meals and instruct others in residential settings with multiple ranges, dish washers, sinks, refrigerators and numerous storage cabinets.
