The ability to be on our own, accomplish something by ourselves, make our own choices.
Independence means different things to different people.
For Veronica, who wanted to be able to communicate, it meant learning how to use an enabling board to communicate when she was hungry, tired, hurt, and her needs and wants.
For Valery, indpendence meant working with her direct support professionals to be able to walk on her own and walk down the aisle at her sister's wedding this summer.
For Justin, it meant making the leap to living in a group home away from his parents in order to learn how to take care of himself.
