Often times people with disabilities experience limitations. Tasks that were taken for granted can no longer be accomplished. To maintain independence, people must learn new skills to accomplish routine tasks. New skills may range from new ways to button a shirt, learning to use adaptive equipment, learning skills to hire, fire, and manage your personal attendants. As true with other services requested by an individual, the individual is in control of how much training he/she receives. Independent living skills are taught in the individual’s own home, or the environment that the skills will be used in.
