Keeping It Specially Simple

Functional Living Skills

Functional Living Skills:

Do you ever struggle teaching your child independent skills – home living, personal care, etc.? It can be easier said then done, especially if they are accustomed to having things done for them. You may be rushed, your child may be fighting you every step of the way, you may be too exhausted, but teaching life skills early on is an important part of raising a child with disabilities.

One way to begin teaching life skills to your child is to break up your child’s daily routines in a typical day. For example, create checklists for different parts of the day. There are many ways to implement this into your life and home and KISS is here to help you develop these skills.

KISS helps instruct individuals with disabilities and their caregiver’s basic daily self-care activities within an individual’s place of residence, in outdoor environments, and both. We will help to instruct and implement the natural daily activities. For example: feeding themselves, bathing, dressing, grooming, work, homemaking, potty training, and leisure.
