Develop Daily Living and Life Skills
Development of daily living and life skills focuses on training and development activities undertaken by participants to increase their ability to live as autonomously as possible. Training can be provided either individually or through group activities and can include skills in daily life activities, communication and social skills, problem solving and managing funding of supports.
How We Can Help
To assist participants to manage their challenges with confidence and independence, we offer a range of training and development activities, aimed at building their capacity to manage day‐to‐day life, through the development of their knowledge, skills and networks of support.
General Life Skills Development
Over our years of experience within the disability and community sectors we have come to recognise and appreciate the level of complexity faced by people with a disability when tackling everyday tasks and activities. We can provide training and development across a range of life skills, including:
Personal Hygiene & Nutrition
Such as showering, toileting, personal care, shopping for groceries and planning for and preparing a healthy meal.
Numeracy, Literacy & Financial management Skills
Develop independence to manage your finances, including managing a bank account and creating a budget.
Maintaining Cleanliness at Home
Such as housework, laundering of clothes and addressing maintenance issues or repairs.
Communicating with service providers and support networks.
Transport and Travel
Such as planning your journey, accessing public transport and trouble‐shooting issues.
Training to Care for Others
Some may have responsibility to care for others, which is no easy task. We can provide support and guidance.
Training for Parents and Carers
We understand that being a parent or career is a full‐time, high pressure job, placing significant demands on an individual’s time, energy and resources. We can work with parents and carers to develop the skills, knowledge and understanding required to manage both their day‐to‐day realities and longer-term situations.
In partnership with parents and carers, we can provide information and guidance about the management of challenging behaviours, personal care, meal time support, managing episodic issues including residential transitions.
