Engaging Content

Video modeling is engaging and entertaining for learners so they won’t even realize they are learning which allows for easy translation to an environment so they can be successful.

Unlimited Repetition

Learners can repeat the videos as many times as needed to observe appropriate language and behavior in real-life situations on a screen and then use this new behavior in real-life situations.

Achieve Independence

Life Skills Academy provides clear, straight-forward information to help learners function independently in their homes, schools, communities, and workplaces.

Teaching Life Skills Has Never Been Easier!

Life Skills Academy is based on the concept of video modeling, where users watch someone do the desired behavior and then they do it. Using real videos makes for quicker generalization of the concepts being taught, and with a video library of over 5,500 videos to choose from, there’s something for everyone. Whether the user needs help with basic signs & words, hygiene, grooming, dress, social skills, or even core vocabulary, our system uses real-life video (not cartoons, drawings, animations or symbols) to communicate the concept clearly and effectively.

Video Modeling Done Right

If you think you can, or think you can’t, you are probably right” – Henry Ford

When we think about independent living, we sometimes forget that tasks we consider basic can be challenging for others. For some, going on a shopping trip, using basic literacy skills, understanding how to act appropriately, or transitioning from school to adult life are very challenging tasks. Life Skills Academy provides easy to understand information that allows learners to become more capable of functioning independently in their homes, schools, communities and workplaces.

The Functional Skills System not only teaches independent living skills, but because the system is cloud-based, you can actually take it with you. Because the system works on smart phones and tablets, you can actually pull up the videos wherever you are, opening new doors for freedom and independence.
