Mastering the Art of Daily Living: A Pillar of Independence

At OPTIONS Transitions to Independence, we understand that ‘specialized education’ extends beyond the classroom. With our Independent Living Programour, students don’t just receive an education; they acquire vital life skills, preparing them for the complexities of adult life. Central to our approach are ADLs and IADLs, the cornerstones of living a fulfilling, independent life.

Core Components of ADLs & IADLs in Our Independent Living Program:

ADLs: The Fundamentals

Activities of Daily Living, or ADLs, cover essential self-care tasks that foster independence. These skills range from basic eating, hygiene, and mobility tasks to foundational elements that ensure safety and well-being.
