Students in Sarah Ashworth’s Daily Living class at Washington Center work throughout the school year on academic and functional skills to support student independence. Students visit the classroom once a week and activities are carried over to the primary classroom, at home and out in the community. Basic skills are introduced and increased in complexity with individual student success. Students perform domestic living, pre-vocational, personal care, workplace skills, leisure/recreation, technology and cooking skills while incorporating South Carolina State Standards and other school adopted curriculums. The students enjoy the exposure to new activities and the feeling of accomplishment upon completion of a skill.
