Our Components: Independence

The Independence Program helps guide each individual to make experience-based decisions that will lead to an increase in self-esteem and ultimately lead to self determination and self-advocacy.

Independence goals are determined based on each individual’s needs. Some examples of independence goals include learning¬†personal information such as a¬†phone number and address, learning how to safely prepare a meal, or learning safety in the community.

Mira will strive to help each person meet their goal to increase their personal independence in daily living.
