PROGRAM DESCRIPTION: A Life Skills Program focuses on everday skills for Special Education Students: personal/social skills, hygiene, independent life skills such as cooking and clothing care, work competencies, and functional academics. These skills are essential for special education students to learn because they provide the basis for and facilitate transition from school to life in the "real world. Special education students learn things better when they are not confined to sitting behind a desk or staying in one spot, learning life skills are best done "by doing"; "We learn by doing."
