What We Do 

LIFE Skills

LIFE Skills classroom is an educational placement designed to meet the educational needs of students in grades K-12 with significant cognitive disability who requires direct, intensive, individualized instruction and supports in order to acquire, maintain, and generalize skills.  Academic instruction is focused on prerequisite, vertically aligned skills.  Areas of instruction can include:  functional academics, self-help, domestic, vocational, communication, social, and behavior.

The LIFE Skills classrooms are organized around the principles of structured teaching to maximize student independence and to allow teachers to deliver direct instruction of student IEPs on an individual and small group basis. Attention is given to appropriate and purposeful inclusion of students in the general education setting as well.

The LIFE Skills  program uses a team approach to address the unique needs of each student. Depending on student need, service providers from a variety of disciplines plan and implement the overall educational program. Support from district staff is available to assist teachers in behavior management, structured teaching, autism and other areas.
