Life Skills Support
In our life skills classrooms functional, adaptive, and social skills are incorporated into the curriculum. The staff works to develop functional academic skills; along with skills that they will need in everyday life such as: self-care, vocational, functional reading and math, money management, self-advocacy, and independence. Our classrooms have a low staff to student ratio for increased learning, supervision, and safety awareness.
Students have opportunities for functional academics through many hands-on activities and projects such as cooking, apartment living and community outings, adaptive aquatics and adaptive physical education, and various other functional activities which prepare students for vocational and self-help skills.
These K-12 classrooms provide instruction in practical academics, communication, community, domestic, leisure/recreation, and vocational skills. The classrooms emphasize communication and maximum independence.
