Independent Living Skills Training


The Independent Living (IL) Skills program is designed to help people with disabilities in learning new and healthy independent living abilities.  Our staff works directly with the consumer to teach these new skills through hands-on instruction.  Together they write an independent living plan to meet individual needs, such as self-esteem, meal planning, financial management, obtaining housing and transportation and socialization. Independent living is dynamic. This means we go with the flow, working with the consumer’s needs and talents.

Independent Living Skills training includes:

  • Assist consumers in defining independent living goals and develop a plan to successfully meet those goals.
  • Assist consumers with the basic skills needed to achieve independent living and maintain independence.
