NESCA’s real-life skills and executive function coaching focuses on developing essential adaptive and practical independent living skills in real-world environments. Real-life skills coaching is provided by NESCA OTs as well as NESCA Transition Specialists (who have backgrounds in vocational and college counseling).

Specific, individualized goals are established for continued learning, vocation and community life. Our OTs help clients build skills to assist with Activities of Daily Living (ADLs)—everyday, basic tasks that allow a person to both function and thrive—and Instrumental Activities of Daily Living (IADLs)—more complex tasks that allow a person to live and thrive independently. Additionally, our coaches focus on helping our clients manage the executive function tasks of life. By building up functional systems to support organization and initiation, and collaboratively setting goals, our coaches support clients in creating and committing to positive routines and habits. Our transition specialists help build skills to address transitions specifically to employment or post-secondary learning environments.
