ASDAN (the Award Scheme Development and Accreditation Network) provides programs to thousands of schools, disability service organisations, education support centres and training providers worldwide. Programs that ASDAN offer are more flexible than qualifications; they offer imaginative ways of developing, recording and certificating people’s personal achievements.
ASDAN award programs offer a wide choice of programs that have been designed for learners with special educational needs and disabilities to develop their personal, social, independent, work-related and ICT skills.
Activ currently has 11 registered ASDAN sites across Western Australia that provide Towards Independence modules. Towards Independence provides a framework of activities through which personal, social and independence skills can be developed and accredited for those with severe learning difficulties and profound multiple learning difficulties.
There are over 80 modules to choose from for this program which fall into the following categories: Communication and numeracy; Creative studies; Cultural; Independent living; Leisure, Recreation & Sport; Personal development, PSHE and Citizenship & Work related. ASDAN award programs can also be used in conjunction with Person Centred Plans and is a great way to apply structure and measure out comes as well as providing customers with recognition for their achievements.
