Life Skills

Life skills, or daily living skills, are abilities that people with intellectual and developmental disabilities (I/DD) need to achieve their highest level of independence. These include skills related to managing money, personal hygiene, medication management, taking care of living spaces, laundry, cooking, transportation and shopping.

Westchester Institute for Human Development’s Community Support Network is running this virtual three-series workshop for caregivers about supporting life-skills learning for children, teens and young adults with I/DD.

You’ll need to come to the workshop with at least one idea for a life skill that you want your loved one to work on.

The series will cover:

  • The process of teaching and reinforcing life-skills
  • The self-advocate’s perspective on the challenges in developing these skills


When: Tuesday, April 23, 2024; Workshop #2 is scheduled for May 23, Workshop #3 for June 25. (Check back on the WIHD calendar of events for details.)

Time: 6:30 p.m. to 8 p.m.
