I learnt how to be safe walking around the street, how to be safe on the computer and how to be safe at home. I have learnt to use strategies to help me cope when I get nervous. I am learning how to cook and I am trying new foods all the time. I have got a lot more confidence catching the bus because of travel training.” – Learner

There is a strong emphasis on repitition for long-term learning, and also trying multiple approaches to accessing information.
