Life Education

The aim of Life Education is to give each student the skills and knowledge necessary to live as independently as possible.

This program for post-secondary students and adults provides individual programs in basic literacy and numeracy, personal and life skills development, work skills and incorporates an exercise and nutrition program.

For more information on the program, please phone 8245 4600 or email. Please find attached our Life Ed Program brochure.

Work Skills

The Work Skills Program is an enhancement of the current Life Ed curriculum. Staff will work to identify each student's prevocational and vocational skills through the use of strength and ability checklists, with an aim to increase skills for work experience and employment. Students will be worked with individually to ascertain specific areas of interest, and through both one on one and small groups the Program will aim to improve their skill set.

As part of Down Syndrome SA's Life Education and Work Skills programs, participants learn about food groups, how to choose appropriate food items when shopping and daily cooking lessons where participants cook healthy meals for the group. Watch Ellese and Hannah show you how to cook a delilcious chicken stir-fry in the video below.

This recipe is from our easy read cookbook '1, 2, 3 of Cooking', which features family-favourite recipes contributed by the participants. All recipes have been converted to cup and spoon measurements to eliminate large numbers, and have step-by-step instructions with pictures. They are specifically adapted to minimise the difficulties in literacy, numeracy, fine motor and organisational skills
