Welcome to the Daily Living page. Here you will find information about your child’s adaptive functioning. Adaptive skills are referred to as Activities of Daily Living or ‘ADL’s.’ Activities of daily living should develop as your child grows up. For example, a five-year-old who cannot sleep in his own bed, pick up his own toys, or feed himself would be showing developmental delays in terms of adaptive skills. In the articles that follow, you will be introduced to all of these adaptive skills and will have the opportunity to assess whether or not these skills seem to be on-track for your developing child.
