Developing an awareness of their community is the first step for students with multiple disabilities to integrate into that community. By performing simple jobs in the classroom, students will increase their sense of responsibility while becoming aware of their classroom as a community. Lessons include Social Skills, English Language Arts, Orientation and Mobility, and Independent Living Skills.
