Life Skills & Education
One of our main goals at scosa is to work with you to develop your skills and increase your independence.
We appreciate that everyone is different – we all have different abilities and motivations and our focus is to work with you at a personal level to open up new opportunities and life pathways.
For instance you may want to learn how to shop independently, which might include learning to use money and even how to get to the supermarket on your own with public transport.
There are many positive benefits and outcomes associated with our life skills activities that include:
- increased social and community participation
- improved communication skills
- improved language development
- increased reading capacity
- enhanced budgetary and money management skills
- increased understanding of hygiene and safety
- improved fine motor skills
- enhanced sensory stimulation
- increased concentration
- enhanced mental health and wellbeing
- increased confidence and self-esteem
At scosa we will help you to identify the areas in your life that you wish to develop. Whether it be purely to maximise your independence, or maybe to prepare you for the opportunity to undertake further studies, we will be there to listen, mentor and support you.
