Acquiring LIFE Skills is essential for every child’s success. LIFE Skills for Children is about exploring interests, developing skills, learning as a family, and practicing appropriate behaviors in small groups and larger social settings. With LIFE Skills from Development Workshop, the focus is on the individual and on the family as a whole.

LIFE Skills for Children is provided in the home and in the community. Services are individualized to help children with developmental delays gain social skills, reduce negative behaviors and improve their daily functional skills so they can gain greater independence and integration.
