The Adult Life Skills Coaching Program

Build a Foundation for Your Success

The MCLD’s Life Skills Coaching Program is Coming to Zoom!

For the safety of everyone involved in our Life Skills Coaching Program, we’ll be holding our program sessions on Zoom until further notice.

Having the right information and guidance around life skills is especially important in these difficult times, so Desirée is working hard to shift our program online and continue serving Montreal’s community of people with learning disabilities.

Life Skills Coaching

Finding Your Path, One Step at a Time

Life Skills to Help You Succeed

Achieving success isn’t easy. But feeling frustrated or directionless now doesn’t mean that a fulfilling life is out of your reach. Through the MCLD’s Life Skills Coaching program, you’ll be equipped with the skills and knowledge you need to put your struggles behind you and achieve your goals.

During the program, you’ll gain a clearer understanding of your learning disability and how to manage it through coping strategies and the latest assistive technologies. By identifying and focusing on your strengths, the program will help you build up your confidence, giving you the self-esteem to overcome past doubts and disappointments.

From time management and social skills, to self-advocacy and job hunting strategies you’ll be introduced to a wide range of life skills areas. And with guidance from a coach who has overcome her own challenges with a learning disability, you’ll be supported at every stage of your journey to success.

As well, there is support for the parents of adult children with learning disabilities.
