During the Webinar we will discuss the importance of life and independent living skills and how they play an important role that carries over into becoming successful in the workplace as well as living independently with a disability and key services like Independent living centers and Vocational Rehabilitation, so that we can best support the unique and diverse population with disabilities to lead meaningful lives in hopes to reach their goals.
Presenter: Jaci Moreno
Jaci Moreno currently works for Roads To Independence which is an Independent living center, and she works there as a Life Skills Instructor supporting the youth and young adult population with disabilities. Jaci’s passion for this scope of work stems from her growing up with an undiagnosed learning disability and ADHD. Jaci spent many years trying to keep up with her peers in class in relationships and in the workplace. Later in life Jaci received a diagnosis and from then on she has worked towards understanding how disabilities impact our day to day life and our independence. Today she is able to help others work together towards being independent, receive higher education and assists in the work place. Jaci truly believes everyone belongs somewhere but having a disability means we may have to work a bit harder and need some additional skills in finding where that might be
