Eisenhower Vocational Preparatory and Independent living skills was developed with 2 purposes in mind:
- Developing individualized communication, social, and self-management skills necessary to maintain community employment.
- Developing individualized vocational skills for community employment
Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) is used to foster this functional independence. ABA is a science that involves the application of basic behavioral practices (positive reinforcement, repetition and prompting) and the use of systematic data tracking methods to evaluate the efficacy of the behavioral applications used to reach a desired outcome. The ABA methodologies are used to facilitate the development of language, positive skills development (such as self-help), appropriate play and social behavior. ABA reduces problems like self-injurious behavior, tantrums related to transition, communication problems and self-stimulatory behavior that impede the learning process.
The Assessment of Functional Living Skills (AFLS) vocational assessment used is a skills tracking system and curriculum guide for the development of the essential skills for achieving independence. It is used to demonstrate a learner’s current functional skill repertoire and provide tracking information for the progressive development of these skills throughout the lifespan. The AFLS contains task analyses of many of the skills essential for participation in a wide range of family, community, and work environments.
