Life skills are necessary for MDVI children to access independence and integrate in the society. Ban Dek Ramintra School for the Blind with Multiple Disabilities specializes in the education and development of students with visual impairment and additional disabilities. It is dedicated in developing students' potential to acquire daily life skills, communication skills, orientation and mobility, and basic career skills to enable them and maximize their potential for social integration. In line with this, the school has implemented a "semi-trajectory" project with the objective of preparing students for transition. This project involves teaching household chores like kitchen tasks. The target group of this project is composed of 6 MDVI students who are in Grade 4 to Grade 6. These students lack the skills in accomplishing household tasks like preparing ready-made drinks. Teaching MDVI children how to prepare ready-made drinks involves a detailed process of teaching and ensuring students’ safety. For these reasons, the researcher deemed it necessary to use Task Analysis as a teaching approach and Audible Liquid Level Indicator as the equipment to aid the students in performing the task while preventing hazards. This endeavor was able to equip MDVI students with skills and confidence to perform the target task in order to help themselves, their friends and also for their family members when they graduate from the school.
