We discuss Life Skills reference Meaningful Day Activities to include Companionship, Supported Employment Coaches, and Adult Day Training. These are activities that help give value to individuals with disabilities and help them to become contributing members of the community.
We also discuss living arrangements available to those with disabilities. There are various options that are available to include independent living, supported living, and group homes. There are different types of group homes based on the needs of the individual. Some group homes may focus on medical or behavioral issues.
