Proper life skills instructions are immeasurably important for students with disabilities. The knowledge and skill interactions believed to be essential for adult independent living should be met at an early age for Special Needs students. These students require the proper education and support to learn these necessary behaviours.
The three major skill areas that need to be addressed are:
- Daily Living Skills:
Learning how to bathe, groom, cook, and maintain living spaces.
- Personal/Social Skills:
Learning problem solving, activity planning, maintaining interpersonal relationships, participation in community.
- Occupational skills:
Attaining and maintaining employment, peer cooperation, working under supervision, time management, and meeting work standards.
With these, students will eventually gain the basic skills necessary to be independent as they enter adulthood. They will learn how to properly groom, apply appropriate social etiquette, maintain relationships and employment, make decisions about food, health, and money.
Find out how you can teach the necessary life skills to give your Special Needs child a brighter, more independent future.
The 12-month Advanced Diploma in Special Education part-time programme is designed specifically to train potential candidates to teach children with a wide range of disabilities, including those with various degrees of intellectual, physical, behavioural, psychological, and sensory problems, or a combination of these.
