Do you know what the SAILS program is?
SAILS stands for -Students Acquiring Independent Living Skills
It is a full time class located in a community setting. SAILS is designed to increase the independent living and social interactions of young adults with a suggested minimum age of 17 with a variety of disabilities, including autism, who upon graduation could be expected to live semi-independently and/or participate in supported employment. The emphasis of SAILS is on the acquisition and application of functional and age-appropriate skills in a naturalistic context. Students will receive intensive training in functional daily living skills and community access to develop and/or enhance their present skills. SAILS will provide a continuum of instruction through the four domains: Domestic, Vocational, Community and Recreation & Leisure. The use of time, handling money, hygiene and health are also areas that may be explored, based on student need.
