Personal care includes a broad set of daily living skills ranging from personal grooming and hygiene to dressing, doing laundry, clothes shopping, and beyond. Help your young adult develop a daily routine inclusive of showering, shaving (if appropriate), applying deodorant, and so forth. Together with your young adult, you can develop and implement task-analyzed chains (steps) for each of these skills (such as, shampoo first, rinse, conditioner second, rinse, wash face with soap, etc.) For dressing, start by helping your young adult pick out appropriate clothes (e.g., by season or activity) for school the night before, and explain why certain types of clothing are more appropriate for certain environments. Then systematically fade yourself out of the process, thereby allowing your young adult to choose his own clothes and complete his grooming tasks without direct supervision. These are important steps toward independent living.
