This paper contains an overview and suggested competencies for a competency-based life skills training program for adults with special needs. The goal of the program is to provide a meaningful, high quality education and training program for adults with special needs that will lead to mastery of the life skills needed to maximize independence, responsibility, community integration, employability, and quality of life. The guide discusses curriculum, training, focus, program characteristics, program planning, and student outcomes. Following a matrix that shows the relationship between the life skills curriculum and the adult special education curriculum, the guide lists the competencies needed by adults with special needs in the areas of domestic duties, vocational requirements, recreation/leisure activities, community resources, consumer economics, and government. Checklists of suggested training activities/curriculum that can be used as planning sheets for the program are provided. (KC)
