The Life Skills program offers training and support to adults who have a developmental disability and children who have special needs.
The program 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, staff, families, advocates, and significant others work together to develop short-term goals.
The Adult Life Skills Program
The Adult Life Skills Program offers training and support to individuals, 19 years and older, who have developmental disabilities. The program provides 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 based on personal choice.
We are a strength-based, person-centered program 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.
Children’s Life Skills Program
The Children’s Life Skills Program 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 based on the needs of the child or youth and their family.
