Functional Life Skills for Young Adults (FLY)

Making the transition into late adolescence or adulthood is an exciting, but often overwhelming, period in any young person’s life. Maybe you want to be more independent at home, school, or work? Maybe you want to build more meaningful connections with friends? Perhaps you are currently enrolled in a school-based transition program and need additional, focused support? Whether you need just a gentle nudge in the right direction or a detailed road map, our highly skilled therapists at FLY at Seattle Therapy – Skills for Life are equipped to help guide you on your journey to greater independence and self-fulfillment through comprehensive evaluation and highly customized intervention plans.

How We Can Help

  • Improve daily living skills such as cooking, cleaning, self-management, and hygiene
  • Strengthen communication and self-advocacy skills
  • Increase independence and safety awareness within the community
  • Prepare for college or employment
  • Overcome difficulties with feeding and food aversions
  • Manage digital communication and social media use
  • Implement environmental adaptations within the living space or workspace
  • Identify and engage in social activities and relationships
  • Explore leisure preferences and develop leisure skills
  • Build a toolkit of sensory processing strategies for use at home or in the community


Building Self-Determination. Self-Determination is the process of being actively engaged in the choices that direct your own life. Young adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities often do not have the same opportunities to make choices about the important aspects of their lives. In order to fully maximize independence and build self-determination, young adults must have opportunities to learn what choices are available to them, what their personal strengths are, and how their actions influence their futures. We believe that hope begins with feeling understood, and FLY at Seattle Therapy guides young adults with a strengths-based approach. As families and young adults understand themselves better, they can more effectively navigate their lives and advocate for their own needs
