I taught 18-21 year olds for several years, and we spent a lot of time in the community. Community-based instruction is a great way to generalize academic skills as well as practice unplanned skills. A weekly activity was to go grocery shopping and

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

I have a passion for helping students to become independent which translates to teaching lifeskills, particularly in the community. When I noticed students who were right on the verge of being independent as they graduated or exited the school system, I was inspired to create a decision-making app to provide a middle layer of support for them and peace of mind for parents. It's called Smart Steps Mobile. See www.SmartSteps4me.com for more informations.
