Objectives of Programme

The daily living skills training in Grace Orchard School focuses not only on skills necessary for fundamental functioning such as dressing, feeding, personal health and hygiene; but also on skills to enable an individual to live independently in a community. The aim is to enable students to participate more fully at home, at the workplace and in the community. Some examples of the skills include: performing simple housework, maintaining a healthy lifestyle, managing money, shopping for groceries, and taking public transport within the community.
