Functional Skills Class - A Division Of Special Education Services
Many academic subjects and daily living tasks are taught in the Functional Skills setting. We do not focus on one topic such as Math or Reading, but include all content areas, plus much more. Daily living skills are also included such as cooking, cleaning, and personal care. Social skills is another area worked on which helps individuals adapt to everyday life outside of the school environment. Social stories are one example of how a student can be taught to model appropriate behavior. It is important to have fun while at school as well. Students are given opportunities to get involved in school activities with their general education peers. Students are encouraged to join clubs, music, attend all school functions, buddy programs, and be a part of Special Olympics. In the functional skills setting, we are all about growing students from where they are currently.
