Student Support Services

  • The Life Skills Support program provides a continuum of services for students, ages five through 21, 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, motor, behavioral and vocational potential to increase independent functioning.
