Weekend Enrichment: Life classes are designed for adults with special needs who have goals of living independently. Those who are wanting to move out and need to learn/practice general housekeeping, cooking, scheduling, and independent community living. This is designed as a drop-off program where the adults will be performing tasks as independently as possible.
This unique enrichment program is designed for adult community members who must be able to conduct themselves safely in the community, a 1:5 setting, follow 2-3 step directions, exhibit minimal behaviors, and handle all personal needs.
C attended her first LIFE session. She was very pleased and excited about what they learned - vacuuming and cleaning. She even vacuumed the house the next day. She needs some more practice and to learn to look for dirt and dog hair! So far, we are very pleased.
A attended the LIFE event today. It was a rainy day but he had a good time practicing his cleaning skills at the house, learning about pet care with Layla the Chihuahua, and playing Scrabble. Making new friends is a plus!!!
