Developing your Child’s Day to Day and Adaptive Skills (5-12 years)


Teaching your child to do things for themselves is very important for two main reasons:

• It allows your child develop the skills they will need when they are teenagers and adults.

• It teaches them that you believe in their ability, which fosters a sense of worth and self-esteem in your child. Letting them do things themselves communicates “I trust you, you are able”.
