Life Skills Training

AiMHi has been a leader in providing Community Living Services in Prince George for over 65 years. We are proud to support all members of our community in living their best lives.

Life Skills

Life Skills offers training and support to adults who have a developmental disability and children who have special needs.

These services focus is to teach individuals independence in daily living.

We assess a person’s skill level by doing a strengths and needs assessment. With this information, the individual, employees, families, advocates, and significant others work together to develop short-term goals.


Adult Life Skills offers training and support to individuals, 19 years and older, who have developmental disabilities. We provide services to people who live on their own or to people preparing to live on their own. Our mission is to help people live as full citizens in their community. We offer services that are uniquely tailored to each person’s goals and needs. The times and days are flexible and are based on personal choice.

We are a strength-based, person-centered service that focuses on the positive qualities and accomplishments of each person. We provide opportunities for people to learn about themselves, explore their strengths and challenges, develop interpersonal communication skills, employability skills and build relationships with others.

Adult Life Skills provides training and supports in the CLBC 8 Life Domains. Specific supports in each domain include the following (but not limited to):

Children’s Life Skills supports children (age 0-18) who have special needs and are referred by the Children and Youth with Special Needs (CYSN) Team. Parents then meet with a Life Skills Instructor and sign a contract for their child. Contract goals for the child are defined by the parents and social worker. The times and days are flexible and are based on the needs of the child or youth and their family.
