Students enrolled at Leda ESC undertake a variety of life skills experiences that teach them how to handle problems and situations they might commonly encounter in everyday life. These life skills are acquired both through classroom teaching and by personal experiences that take place in the community.
Emphasis is placed on the acquisition of a range of social and interpersonal skills that will enable our students to interact successfully with their community. Functional literacy and numeracy are also priority areas and our students will often be seen riding on public transport, shopping for a purpose and accessing a range of community services such as the library, post office and the bank. They also often undertake hygiene programs, plan and cook meals and learn how to take care of personal belongings and pets.
The long term goal for our students is for them to undertake successful independent living.
