Giving people with disability the
freedom to travel independently
Living Skills Training is a specialist service based in Sydney that teaches children, teenagers and adults with disability how to use public transport safely and independently.
Our expertise is in teaching the use of public transport to people of all ages with all types of abilities. We specialise in assisting people with intellectual disability, autism, anxiety, learning delays, mental health issues, cerebral palsy and mobility issues. One thing most trainees have in common when they start is high anxiety and a lack of confidence.
We can help you get the knowledge, skills and confidence you need to travel on your own. It doesn’t matter whether you are a new user of public transport or would like to learn a new route - travel training is of value to people of all ages. The benefits can last a lifetime.
We have been providing travel training since 2011, with a high success rate for our trainees. We work together with parents, family members and service providers to help individuals reach their goals around independence.
