Disability Options Network’s Center for Independent Living can offer a variety of support to help individuals develop new skills that will increase a persons independence. This is all driven by the creation of an Independent Living Plan with established goals in that plan which are developed along with the consumer.
Center for Independent Living staff work in partnership with an individual to develop necessary daily living skills which can be essential when an individual travels that bold path to achieving independence.
Skills training can be very broad and include such things as the management of finances, learning basic meal preparation, learning how to use public transit, learning how to direct your attendant care, etc.
The emphasis will be on providing guidance so that the individual develops needed skills on their own.
