Development of Life Skills

Development of Life Skills

Development of daily living and life skills focuses on training and development activities undertaken by the participant or their carer to increase their ability to live as autonomously as possible, including supports that will enhance the ability of the participant to travel, use public transport independently, practice and maintain personal hygiene regularly and many more. Life Skills are abilities for adaptive and positive behaviour that enable humans to deal effectively with the demands and challenges of life.

We understand your goals and work with you and your family or carers to put in place supports to develop everyday skills with a particular focus on building confidence and independence. If you have a unique skill that you want to learn, AAAR Ability Assist will work with you to reach your goal. We also improve your skills for communication and independent living. We provide services to assist you and your families or carers to navigate all the problems faced in your daily life, as well as to implement strategies that will increase your potential to manage these problems.

General Life Skills Development

Over our years of experience within the disability and community sectors we have come to recognise and appreciate the level of complexity faced by people with a disability when tackling everyday tasks and activities. We can provide training and development across a range of life skills, including:

  • Personal hygiene: such as showering, toileting and personal care
  • Nutrition: such as shopping for groceries and planning for and preparing a healthy meal
  • Maintaining cleanliness in your home: such as housework, laundering of clothes and addressing maintenance issues or repairs
  • Communicating with service providers and support networks
  • Transport and travel: such as planning your journey, accessing public transport and troubleshooting issues.
