Priority Area: Understanding the needed skills to live independently.
Description: An interactive toolkit that walks you through the skills needed and the youth’s readiness for independent living.
This toolkit was made for young people with disabilities who want to learn to live on their own. It was also made for their family members who want to help. It is also a great tool for adults with disabilities who want to live on their own and for people who want to be better at taking care of themselves with less help.
How to Use the Toolkit
This toolkit was made for YOU, a person with a disability. The people who support you may choose to go through it with you. That might be your parents, other family members, workers, or teachers.
