ADL – Activities of Daily Living – Our goals in ADL and Life Skills training are to help our members live with as much independence as they are capable of. Depending on the goals of the individual, members learn to do their laundry; budget and banking; plan, grocery shop for the ingredients, and cook their own meals; clean up after themselves and organize their belongings; perform routine self care tasks; use a telephone or the internet to meet a need; and others as they arise to meet a certain goal. With the addition of a new life skills room, our members will be able to practice their skills in a mock studio apartment.

 

Pre-vocational – Members learn a variety of functional job tasks which helps identify what kind of work they are best suited for. They work on office skills, building maintenance, computers, retail, etc. With various internships within the local community,
our members also have the opportunity to practice what they have learned in real work environments with the support of a job coach.

 

Skills Development – In addition to increasing independence with skills our members already have, new skills are taught in a systematic way. New tasks are broken down into steps and performance data is taken to ensure a step is mastered before it is built upon.

 

Social Skills – During Social Skills groups, members have the opportunity to practice interacting with a group of their peers in a structured, goal-oriented way. We use video modeling, games, improvisation, and role playing to work on skills such as reading social cues, body language, listening, asking questions, topic maintenance, etc. The skills taught during groups are then practiced throughout the day.
