Having a Disability
So you have a disability? That doesn’t mean you can’t live independently or be independent in other areas of your life. Many young adults with disabilities choose their own apartments. Some young adults are even buying houses, townhouses, or condominiums because they planned ahead!
At The Youthhood, lots of teens with disabilities live independently in their own places by themselves or with roommates. Some live independently but are still at home with their families.
Being independent isn’t easy. You have to work hard to make it happen. If you plan ahead, get help with your planning, and make sure you have a plan for the support you need, you can make it happen!
