K-12 Program Description
Functional Living Skills K-12 Program
The FLS K-12 Program provides instruction to students in grades K-12. Services are individualized for each student and may include cognition, communication, motor, physical, and some vocational training. Based on student needs the services may also emphasize health care.
Referred students are eligible for special education and demonstrate significant needs in functional academics, communication, motor, and physical abilities. Services focus on increasing the student’s ability to understand and respond to their environment. Students require additional instruction to gain communication and motor skills to interact and access their environment.
The FLS Full Service K-12 Program provides instruction for students to develop communication skills, socially appropriate behaviors, and personal management skills that are commensurate with their cognitive level of functioning. Students receive services, including medical care, to meet their individual physical and health needs while in school. Staff provides intensive physical and sensory management to support students throughout the day and ensure their success.
Students participate in classroom and community settings. For students preparing to enter post-secondary programs community and work experiences are available. Based on their IEP students also have opportunities to develop independent living skills by accessing a variety of environments, including the community.
