The Skills Development Program is designed to assist NDIS participants particularly those leaving high school, but also older participants to develop their executive functioning skills. The goal is to make it easier for them to learn and develop the skills necessary to take care of themselves and find meaningful paid or volunteer work in the future. The program will be developed and implemented by a team of Allied Health Professionals.
The first stage of the program will involve a range of activities including:
- A strength and conditioning program to develop core muscle strength and endurance.
- A mindfulness program to support attention and concentration
- Meaningful and productive community based work experience
- Basic domestic duties and life skills.
All of which are designed to ensure clients receive a repetitive and well-rounded range of transferable skills.
The second stage of the program will introduce longer and more repetitive skills in a workplace environment.
