Independent Living Skills (IL Skills) training assists individuals in improving their ability to live independently, utilizing adaptions and devices designed for visual loss.
Specialists at Lighthouse of SWFL work with clients to assist with increasing confidence and comfort in asking for and utilizing the reasonable accommodations afforded to them. Social workers at Lighthouse of SWFL work with clients and offer Adjustment to Blindness counseling (either individually or in a group setting). While both individual and group counseling is effective, support groups provide a safe environment where long lasting friendships with one’s peers are made.
