Self Care Skills
The Villa Self Care Programme equips our students with the necessary skills for daily living.
The ultimate goal is for each student to achieve their maximum potential.
The objectives are:
Teeth cleaning, showering, hair care, nail care, use of toiletries - deodorant etc, toileting and programmes for enuresis where this is desired by the student themselves.
Hair, clothing, awareness of appropriate dressing for occasions and climate. Tidiness, shoe cleaning, and general appearance.
Recognising when he feels ill and knowing what to do, eg staying in bed, drinking fluids, taking medication on time etc.
Chores are carried out by the students with supervision and help from staff who take each student's personal ability into account. These personal responsibilities include: kitchen duties, dining room duties, bathroom duties, making their own bed, keeping their bedroom and wardrobe tidy, recognising when repairs to clothes are necessary, knowing when dirty clothes need to be changed, simple baking, dishing up appropriate amounts of food when serving self or others, knowledge of tableware and dining equipment used.
