Are you looking for life skills training for adults with disabilities?

Aptiv’s Daily Living Skills Training program provides services to adults with disabilities who have adequate motor and adaptive skills to train for life skills in a closely supervised and structured setting. The program is designed to meet the diverse needs of individuals and promote personal growth in maximizing functional ability, independence, and exposure to real-life activities.

What happens in Daily Living Skills Training?

The Daily Living Skills Training program can be customized for the individual to receive specific skills and social training.

Areas of support may include a variety of personal care tasks based on the individual's needs such as grooming, mouth care, personal hygiene, and dressing. Another segment of the Daily Living Skills Training program will include grocery shopping, meal preparation, washing dishes, putting away dishes, general cleaning, sweeping, vacuuming, and learning how to do laundry. There is also a variety of community outings and activities that provide skill-building opportunities.

In the Daily Living Skills Training program, the primary focus is to participate in and build on those meaningful and necessary activities that will allow a person to reach their personal goals and enjoy greater independence in their life. Semi-annually, or if a major change has occurred, a staffing is held with all concerned parties to review or revise the training plan.
