Independent Living Skills Specialist

Despite the title, an Independent Living Specialist at SJCI is really a generalist who supports people with disabilities toward the independent lifestyle of their choice. What an ILS does:

    • Teach by example and role model
    • Refer to current community resources
    • Emotional support – from adaptive recreation to personal crisis
    • Skill enhancement in self advocacy for:
  • assistive technology
  • accessible housing
  • transportation
  • daily living skills
  • developing and maintaining independence
