What Is The Center’s SMART Skills Program?

In addition to The Center’s IDD assisted living programs in Houston, TX, we have the SMART Skills program. “SMART” is an acronym for Successful, Meaningful, Attainable, Readiness, Transformation. At approximately age 22, many of our clients are ready to make the move from structured situations like living at home tor attending school to more independent living. To do that successfully, they must master particular skills such as:

  • Taking care of their finances
  • Dealing with conflict
  • Making choices that benefit their health
  • Living harmoniously with other people
  • Pinpointing and utilizing community resources

Without adequate preparation for what they will encounter, our clients would risk losing some of their self-confidence and in turn, might become hesitant about being on their own. The SMART Skills program is customized to each individual so that person’s needs are fully met and addressed. Overall, the program “promotes healthy habits and good decision-making” and is a valuable step in our clients’ steady progression toward living a fulfilling and independent life.
