Life & Independent Living Skills-The Purpose Project

Life and independent living skills refer to the abilities necessary for individuals to function effectively and autonomously in their daily lives. These skills encompass a broad range of tasks and activities that enable individuals to manage their personal affairs, navigate their environment, and participate actively in society with purpose and joy.

Developing proficiency in life and independent living skills is particularly important for individuals with disabilities or special needs, as these skills enhance their ability to live independently, foster self-confidence, and promote integration into society. Educational programs, vocational training, therapy, and support services often focus on teaching and reinforcing these skills to enhance individuals’ quality of life and facilitate their successful transition to adulthood.

Once you have decided that ABI is the right fit for your family, we will book an in-home assessment where we will individualize a treatment plan.

Our Director, a Registered Nurse and BCBA, will meet with you personally to discuss recommendations based on the assessment and a proposal for service is submitted to you for approval. This is a fluid conversation where you decide what will work best for your child, and for your family.

Having the right Team by your side is important. Your trust in us is a privilege. Together, we will select your Team, a start date and provide you with as much support as you need, every step of the way.
