This class is unique in that it has mandatory parent trainings that will help you as a parent learn how to set goals and get outcomes for your child related to achieving independence at home and in the community. Good parenting is where independence begins. One of the most important things a child should be consistently striving toward is greater independence. The parent plays a critical role in continuously reinforcing this mindset and the skills in their children. That is why we not only work with the child but the parents!
This program will also serve as a stepping stone for students to explore their role in the community, as well as various social expectations. The class over the next six weeks will focus on life skills and reaching independence at home and how to use appropriate social skills in a variety of settings. High School mentors will be at every class.
