Skills Development Online

The Independent Living Skills Development Program is designed to help you make the most of your abilities and increase your self-reliance and self-confidence. By providing you with training, resources, and information on adaptive equipment, we can help you take control of your life in order to live independently.

Disability History Week

We have a new online skills training class - Disability History.

Disability History Week was signed into law by then Gov. Joe Manchin in April 2006 - due to the efforts of a group of young people with disabilities in West Virginia. Disability History Week in West Virginia requires instruction in public schools on disability history, people with disabilities, and the disability rights movement during the third week in October every year.
