Is Your Child Struggling With Tasks Like Eating, Dressing, Bathing, or Navigating Everyday Systems?Daily living skills in childhood are the skills needed for independent living, such as hygiene, domestic chores, self-care, eating, and sleeping. Activities of daily living should develop as your child grows.
- For a child, independence may be dressing themselves and brushing teeth without help.
- For a teen, managing transportation or meal preparation shows independence.
- For a young adult, safe driving, getting to appointments on time, or managing finances are independent living skills.
