LEARNING MORE ABOUT OUR
self-care + independence skills
As kids get older, their needs change and the therapeutic interventions may shift focus. Independent living skills encompass many skill areas including, but not limited to, personal care (dressing, grooming, and hygiene), food preparation, clothing management (laundry, sorting, identification), money management, personal organization (materials and time management), household maintenance, and transportation. Occupational therapy can help older clients learn important life skills they will need after graduation.
