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.

       Diedra has been a positive part of our lives for over five years. She has been a resource for us when needed - she is just an email away if something comes up between visits.
