Life Skills

We feel strongly that teaching in school must be generalized to the home and community in order for our students to be successful in those environments, and we continually strive to provide a variety of experiences for our students.

In and out of the classroom, we rehearse real world situations and work to instill everyday concepts.

Our staff blends academic lessons with life skills to strengthen our students’ abilities to manage, navigate, and enjoy family and social activities. Lessons vary by age, but include all activities of daily living such as grocery shopping, dressing, food preparation, table setting, and administrative tasks.

Social skills are reinforced in all of our onsite and offsite experiences.

Leisure Skills

We offer our students frequent opportunities for extra-curricular activities that provide not only fun experiences but experiences that also increase physical fitness, improve socialization, build self-esteem, introduce them to new experiences, and motivate them to succeed.

The extra-curricular activities we offer include music therapy, horseback riding, karate lessons, cardio/strength class, art, museum visits, piano lessons, and field trips to local parks where they can be outdoors riding scooters, bicycles, and playing games with their fellow students.
