It sort of goes without saying how important lifeskills are... yet as teachers we often don't get to see the whole picture at school, so collaboration with and information from home is SO essential! This resource will help you gather this information by providing parents with structured choice options to give you more clear insight (e.g., Johnny can get dressed independently once someone has laid out his clothes or Sarah can shower by herself if Mom stands in the bathroom giving verbal instructions).
The sooner we begin to target some of these very complex and challenging skills for our learners, the more successful and independent they can be in their futures!! Once you know your starting place, you'll be ready to support your students, develop IEP goals & help establish effective home routines!
In this resource you will find 3 versions of each of the assessments: 1. PDF Format (because...cute fonts are my jam), 2. An Editable version in powerpoint so you can customize as you see fit!, 3. A google form that can easily be emailed out to caregivers for instant input!
The Assessments Include:
1. Eating Skills & Habits
2. Toileting (male & female version)
3. Dressing Skills
5. Hygiene & Grooming
