Life Skills

Life skills and disabilty go hand in hand. Many people with a disability find that their life skills are altered or underdeveloped and require assistance in this area. Unicef describes life skills as “a group of psychosocial competencies and interpersonal skills that help people make informed decisions, solve problems, think critically and creatively, communicate effectively, build healthy relationships, empathize with others, and cope with and manage their lives in a healthy and productive manner. Life skills may be directed toward personal actions or actions toward others. Life Skills also includes physical functional skills like fine motor, gross motor and strength. Life Skills can include community partication and engagement alsongside tailored creative sessions.

How we help

Working with children, youth, adults and aged, we meet with you to gather information on which life skills need some focus.

We can obtain - with your permission information from your assisting therapists - for example your Occupational Therapist or Physiotherapist etc.

We then outline the life skill or skills that will be the focus of your sessions. 

From here you get to select creative sessions that reflect that life skill.

We can also assist with community participation activities and engagement.
