Life Skills at LOGOS
We strive to prepare our students to be successful inside the classroom and beyond. The life skills our students learn and use during their time at LOGOS are identified through the conversations they have with their therapist during individual therapy sessions and then practiced during both group therapy sessions with peers and in the classrooms with their teachers. Therapists and teachers collaborate to understand the skills each student is working on and how students can best be supported when they are at LOGOS.
Some of the behavior-related life skills students focus on include:
- Peer-to-Peer Communication
- Conflict Mediation
- Anger Management
- Time Management
- Building Social Skills
Some of the independent-living life skills students focus on include:
- Money Management
- Using Mass Transportation
- Home Maintenance
- Exploring Career Interests
- Personal Healthcare
TASC Talks With Ryan
Our Therapeutic and Academic Support Center Coordinator, Ryan Gist, recently began a podcast to support students when then encounter life challenges that require extra support therapeutically. With COVID-19 causing a disruption in our students’ lives, Ryan knew he needed to be able to reach students remotely while they were participating in remote learning and therapy. Ryan’s job, as well as many of the other staff who help students’ through behavior intervention therapy, is to provide support and resources needed to help students rely on the life skills they have learned through their individual and group therapy.
We will discuss three topics surrounding the idea of e-learning: access to technology, different learning styles and desire to learn. Students will be able to identify those obstacles that prevent them from being successful e-learning students and develop strategies to overcome them.
Failure. What is it? How we can overcome its impact to find success? We will briefly discuss some topics related to failure and how to reframe our minds around dealing with it.
In this episode, we discuss mindfulness as we begin a brand new, virtual school year. We talk about the three Bs and how we can incorporate them in our daily lives.
Our Director of Transition Services, Kim Jayne, works primarily with our high school students to designs activities that prepare students to use the life skills they've learned throughout their time at LOGOS to move to post-high school life.
Together they investigate the following options and opportunities:
- Post-Secondary Education
- Independent Living
