    *Functional Academics – Reading, writing and math
    *Personal Maintenance – Feeding, drinking, toileting, grooming, and clothing care *Recreation/Leisure – Spectator activities, hobbies, and physical fitness
    *Interpersonal Communication – Responding to others, identifying self and others, and exploring self

    *Community – Social interaction and travel

    *Social/Behavioral/Affective – Responsible behavior and understanding emotions

    Individual, small group, and whole group instruction is provided through various means including community-based instruction (shopping, banking, and transportation), which is designed to teach students to use the classroom skills and appropriate behaviors in real-life situations.
