The Living in a Functional Environment (LIFE) Skills Program is a self-contained program designed to meet the individual needs of students while emphasizing the role that the students play in the school, classroom and community. This program provides academic, functional, social/emotional, self-care and pre-vocational skill. Students in this program display a marked delay in academic achievement and adaptive behaviors. Students benefit from functional, hands-on instruction and meaningful life skills in a natural setting. This is done through Community Based Instruction and hands-on life center activities. In addition students in this program, based on individual needs, may be provided with related services such as: speech, occupational therapy, and physical therapy, vision itinerant, hearing itinerant, social work, nursing and autism support.
