Independent Functional/Living Skills
An important facet of our program is for the student to learn to be as independent as possible in regards to daily living skills. Once a particular life skills theme is chosen (i.e. home), the student’s academic and functional goals are focused around it. These skills are often taught in a more natural setting to allow the child to transfer what they learn here at the Academy to their home environment.
