• 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
    • Emphasis on transition to adulthood
    • Community-based instruction
    • Pre-vocational instruction
