Instructor: Amy Hague

Tuesdays, 4-5:30 pm

Life Skills classes are designed to meet the needs of students whose intellectual, developmental and academic levels require specific hands-on teaching of daily living activities. The focus of the Life Skills course is to teach functional skills in daily living, vocational, recreation/leisure and community participation for students from 4th-12th grade, at their individual ability levels. The activities that are prepared will be functional and age-appropriate, and will change to meet the needs of the student. Instruction will be provided in a small group setting and some classes will include community-based experiences. Parents, volunteers, and BHPs are always welcome but not required as long as students can work in a small group with 1-2 adults.

Students will meet at Manchester Elementary for a life skills lesson such as building self advocacy, money management, learning the basics of cooking, building healthy relationships, community, internet safety and more. The class will meet weekly to support students with forming a sense of community. Students will also have time at the end of class to socialize and receive support in social situations when engaging with their peers. Students can also learn to play new games which will help with social skills outside of class as well as understanding how to take turns and properly engage others. 

Classes will be offered every Tuesday from 4-5:30 from September 13th - November 15th. Students will need to be dropped off and picked up at Manchester Elementary. This class will include community outings, some of which will require students to be dropped off at an alternate location. 

I look forward to being a part of this community and supporting our students to enhance their life skills. Although I will not be writing goals for students for this class, I will provide regular feedback and will have students complete a portfolio of activities that are complete throughout the class. Please reach out if you have any questions or would like to volunteer for a class.
