Having a Functional Skills Checklist for special needs students is crucial for their overall development and success. This checklist serves as a valuable tool to assess, track, and support the acquisition of essential life skills for individuals with special needs. By breaking down these skills into manageable components, the checklist helps educators, therapists, and parents identify areas of strength and areas that require additional support. It promotes a systematic approach to teaching and monitoring functional skills, enabling students to gain independence, improve their quality of life, and participate more fully in their communities.
