Independent Living Skills/Parenting
The Independent Living Skills/Parenting program consists of an ongoing series of classes related to parenting the special-needs child. Parenting a child with special needs can be very challenging at times. The courses are set up workshop-style and repeated a few times throughout the year. Our overall course objective is to provide parents with a better understanding of their child’s needs, as well as providing an outlet for personal and family growth. As a specialized component of the ILS program, Parenting is able to provide the following services on a one-to-one basis: individual parent support, positive parenting techniques, parent support groups and assistance with understanding and accessing community services.
