Employment & Vocational Placement:
Nutrition & Healthy Living Skills
Nutrition and Healthy Living Skills equips students with the knowledge and skills they need to make the healthiest eating choices they can. The objective is to encourage students to make connections between what they learn in the classroom and their own lives and make healthy food decisions. Students learn to examine their own food choices and eating patterns and develop personal guidelines for healthy eating, while working within parameters that they can control. The learning in this area emphasizes the importance of student involvement in making food choices and preparing meals and snacks which is in line with the Ontario Healthy Living Curriculum.
Our employment soft skills are essential for daily living and successful employment opportunities. Using a combination of people and communication skills and personal development, students will navigate their environment, work well with others, perform well, and achieve their employment goals.
We support special needs adults and their families by reducing isolation and barriers through individual life skills applicable to the workplace. Our employment and volunteer training programs incorporate weekly life-skills workshops, community volunteer placements and outings that support our student’s special interests. Tabularasa Communities also hosts community partners who deliver specialized workshops at the request of our students. We develop community support and visibility.
