The Life Skills program consists of a school curriculum of repetitive tasks aligned with basic academic content areas and the extended standards while embedding training of practical skills (i.e. dressing, cooking, laundry, housekeeping) in naturally occurring events throughout their day. Your student will learn the life skills required for supported or semi-independent living once they graduate from high school. The skills learned in this classroom will increase your student’s independence and their options for living and working in the community. In addition to learning basic life skills, your student will be taught the alternate standards. The purpose of alternate standards is to build a bridge from the content in the general education framework to academic expectations for students with the most significant cognitive disabilities.
