Life Skills Education

A life skill is used to describe basic skills acquired through learning or knowledge. Daily routine can be said to be a life skill. Life skills also can include the ability of your emotions, finances, school performance, health, etc. Practicing life skills can improve a child’s esteem, social competence, and confidence.

Life Skills focuses on psychosocial competencies and interpersonal skills that help people make decisions, build healthy, solve problems, communicate effectively, and think critically and creatively.

Its important that students moving into vocational studies work on skills such as functional literacy and functional math skills that they can use in everyday life. We aim to increase their skills in the area of teamwork, social emotional balance and communication for everyday use so they can advocate for themselves as they become young adults.

We also strive for them to have digital competence so they have skills to navigate a modern workplace and life.

Individual Education Plan (IEP)

Individual Education Plan implemented by our teachers and therapists help to achieve each students goals for growth.

An IEP is a map that lays out the program of special education instruction, supports, and services students need to make progress and thrive in school. There are many benefits to getting an IEP. The process begins with an evaluation that shows a student’s strengths and challenges. Families and schools use the results to create a program of services and supports tailored to meet the student’s needs.
