The Allen Institute-Center for Innovative Learning “provides a caring and nurturing environment where students with learning disabilities are encouraged and expected to reach their potential.” On the website it says the staff communicates daily on individual student challenges, progress and successes while reinforcing the value of becoming a self-determining adult by developing individual plans that integrate different areas of the students' lives. The Allen Center believes that the post-secondary education and college experience is essential for most students to make a successful transition from home to the workplace or continued higher education in a community based setting.

According to the website, the counseling program assists students with self-growth and self-respect through the development, strengthening and maintenance of positive coping skills and positive interpersonal relationships.

According to the information on the website, the program offers a variety of educational opportunities for students that include both an Associates and Bachelors degree programs, Pre-College Experience and L.I.F.E. Program. Students in the degree program participate in online coursework through an educational partnership with Charter Oak State College in New Britain, CT. The Pre-College Experience, the website says, “is designed to assess a student’s readiness to master college level coursework while helping them to develop a range of college preparatory skills.” The L.I.F.E. Program gives “students a person-centered approach based on the Project-based Learning educational model, and the skills they will need to work and live independently.”

The Allen Institute “is committed to working with each student to strengthen their existing abilities and develop practical tools to negotiate the challenges of multiple environments.” Based on this goal, the information indicates the program is focused on a combination of study and learning that establishes clear goals for academic study, total wellness, independent living skills, social competence and a student’s strategy for managing his/her environment. The academic component follows the core principles of adult learning.
