Dear Parents,


    • A variety of daily living skills increases in importance during the transition period. Start early and practice these skills so your child/young adult will be better able to take care of themselves throughout adulthood. 
      • Cleaning and Maintaining a Home- These skills are vital because they are applicable in any residential setting, along with many public spaces. Learning to clean and maintain a space can develop possible job skills, as well as aiding the promotion of social inclusion. Demonsrate the different types of cleaning products for different areas, such as floors, bathroom, toilets and other areas; emphasize safety; and show your child the appropriate tools to use with them, such as paper towels, sponges and gloves.
