Life Skills Class

We have designed our online Life Skills Class to support children and adults hoping to increase their knowledge and develop life skills necessary for everyday living. This course places a strong emphasis on vital areas such as goal-setting, decision making, and problem-solving. Participants will improve their communication skills, learn about healthy lifestyles, and navigate relationships more effectively. Additionally, the class covers important life skills related to nutrition, personal safety, financial literacy, citizenship, and consumerism.

We focus on developing the following important skills for a successful life:

  • Self-awareness
  • Empathy
  • Critical thinking
  • Creative thinking
  • Decision making
  • Problem solving
  • Effective communication
  • Interpersonal relationships

Our Life Skills Class also helps child or adults with ADHD or Autism develop their interests and pursue their unique hobbies in an educational framework. The overarching aim is to foster self-improvement, boost independence, and make connections with others who share similar interests.

Former Client example:

Bob (name changed), a 35-year-old man with autism, held a college degree, but struggled to find employment due to difficulty in developing key life skills. I worked with Bob on establishing a relationship with ACCESS VR, a city agency that finds employment for people with disabilities. Over the next two years, I supported Bob as he gained benefits and supportive employment at a city museum. Bob now works twenty hours a week and is a valued member of that museum community. In general, he is very happy to be employed after decades of not feeling like a contributing member of society.

However, Bob still faced challenges with everyday tasks and basic living. Living with his elderly mother, who couldn’t cater to his daily needs, he required further support. To help Bob with developing key life skills, I worked with him to establish better eating habits. We created an Amazon account for him, compiling a list of healthy salads and foods for weekly delivery, and set up auto-ship for other essentials to minimize his stress about meal planning and shopping.

Additionally, we worked to find a gym, yoga studio, and exercise classes that Bob liked and could easily attend. Now he goes to morning yoga and afternoon spin classes, which support his physical and emotional well-being. Developing these life skills has opened up numerous opportunities for Bob, significantly enhancing his independence and well-being.
