Independent Living Skills Training
Independent Living Skills Training (ILST) services are designed to improve or maintain the ability of people with brain injuries to live as independently as possible in the community.
After conducting a comprehensive functional assessment, which identifies a person’s ability to perform daily activities, EPI works with participants, their families and caregivers, to establish short and long-term rehabilitative goals and develop a detailed plan of services.
Whether the goals are related to household management, self-care, communication, vocational or some other objective, our team provides assistance, training and oversight towards the completion of these goals.
EPI’s ILST services include training and supervision of a person with self-care, medication management, task completion, communication skills, interpersonal skills, socialization, sensory/motor skills, community transportation skills, reduction/elimination of maladaptive behaviors, problem solving skills, money management, pre-vocational skills and skills to maintain a household.
Services are provided one-on-one, generally in the participant’s home or in community setting. We tailor our services to each person’s preferred manner of learning and to his or her responses to interventions.
Our compassionate and dedicated ILST staff members are specifically trained and have years of expertise in the field.
Our team can help individuals and families clarify eligibility requirements and identify funding and care options.
