Self Care / Life Skills

Self Care and Life Skills involve the most important occupations children learn as they grow. These skills are encompassed in the child's Activities of Daily Living (ADLs) and Instrumental Activities of Daily Living (IADLs). ADL skills include upper and lower extremity dressing, toilet hygiene and bowel/bladder management, bathing and showering, personal hygiene/grooming, eating and feeding, functional mobility, and sleep and rest. IADL occupations are more complex than ADL skills and are vital to children and young adults to prepare for independent living. These activities are needed to participate independently in home, school, community, and work environments. IADL skills include meal preparation, community mobility, health maintenance, home management (clothing care, cleaning), shopping, and care of others and pets.
