Episode 144: Teaching Life Skills

Life skills are critical skills that our learners need to become independent. Here, we cover why teaching life skills is important and how we can do it effectively. Life skills include executive functioning skills, personal care, daily living skills, occupational skills, and so much more. The ability of an individual to enhance their life skills has a direct impact on their quality of life as they grow into adulthood.

We discuss the importance of making sure learners can achieve life skills without the presence of a teacher or guide. Taking ourselves out of the equation is key. We also talk about working with adult learners, how to break skills down into smaller steps, and more.

On Wednesday, April 17th, at 12pm ET, we’re hosting a CEU event for Bx Pro Resource members all about how to teach life skills to adolescent and adult learners. For more information and to register, click on the link below!
