When asked how important are functional life skills a parent responded: "Any 'Functional Life Skills' training would help a special needs child (like my son) in navigating life's challenges at home, in community and in the school environment. In my opinion the 'Functional Life Skills' must coexist with academics in order to be beneficial. Academics are unrealistic and nonexistent without any 'Functional Life Skills' for a special needs child." Ms. J
Home Life Coaching is offering a free written Pre-assessment to the first 10 new clients who sign up for individual services with Home Life Coaching directly or group sessions through Prince George's Community Resources (PGCR) or the One World Center For Autism (OWCA) for our Fall or Winter sessions.
Home Life Coaching began in its infancy in 2013 while providing Life Skills Training to adolescents and adults at The One World Center for Autism. HLC has expanded to offering Life Skills Coaching year round through Prince Georges' Community Resources and OWCA. As a result of the public interest in this therapeutically based programming Home Life Coaching became an LLC in 2019.
What exactly are Life Skills?
Life Skills are those skills or tasks that contribute to the successful, independent functioning of an individual in adulthood. These skills are generally grouped in five broad clusters: self-care and domestic living, recreation and leisure, communication and social skills, vocational skills and other skills vital for community participation." (Alwell, M. & Cobb, B. (2009) Functional Life Skills Curricular Interventions for Youth With Disabilities. Career Development for Exceptional Individuals. 32 (2), 82-93)
Which developmental disabilities qualify for your services?
HLC will provide services to adolescents ages 16 and up as well as, adults with varying disabilities and functional abilities, who demonstrate an interest in learning new skills. HLC will make every effort to adapt activities to meet each individuals level of ability as much as possible.
What age range will HLC serve?
HLC will provide supports to individuals ages 16 and up through adulthood and beyond.
Where does HLC provide these services?
HLC will come to a clients' home or agency or we will provide service
through Prince Georges' Community Resources (PGCR) or The One World Center for Autism (OWCA).
Does an adult have to be present in order to receive HLC services for a client?
Yes absolutely, an adult parent, guardian, adult sibling or Community Support person must be on the premises or in the home at all times during life skills Coaching sessions.
At the conclusion of 6 weeks of individual or group sessions will the client (s) be totally independent in a life skill area?
Every individual will have differing abilities, learning styles, attention spans, etc. Home Life Coaching will do its best to provide the above named services and give the client(s) opportunities to progress their skills, but Home Life Coaching does not guarantee the results. We do believe however, that HLC will expose clients to activities and life skills which are a part of a lifelong learning process.
