Teaching and learning independent daily living skills is important for all children and adults. Use these beautifully illustrated skills to teach your child. The sheets can be laminated and used as is, or laminated and cut out to create visual pecs.
The illustrations can be used to create additional language and literacy programs such as speech programs, sequencing, writing and auditory processing. Don't forget to check out our cooking lesson plans for some great ideas and tips.
Autism and Independent Living Skills
Studies show independent living for adults with ASD is shockingly low with reports indicating that less than 5% live on their own. Many individuals with ASD require 24-hour care (45%) and live with their parents (45%). Reports indicate that very few adults (less than 10%) with ASD have necessary independent day-to-day household skills such as laundry, chores, and meal preparation.
In response to these challenges, our overall project goal is to build functional skills (e.g., cooking, personal hygiene, dressing, laundry and others) among individuals with ASD in order to increase and optimize their capacity for independent living. We hope this will be an invaluable resource to the broader community.
