Life Skills Support
The Life Skills Support program provides a continuum of services for students whose social/behavioral skills are developmentally delayed. At the lower elementary level, programs focus on self-help and readiness skills; the upper elementary level focuses on the acquisition of academic skills; the middle school level focuses on pre-vocational and practical work skills; and the high school level focuses on community-based vocational programming, independent living and recreational/leisure skills.
The primary goal of this program is to develop each student's cognitive, social, behavioral and vocational potential to increase independent functioning.
Program Features:• Curriculum following PA state standards• Direct instruction in functional academics
