After graduating from high school, the author attended Chapel Haven, a program for young adults with special needs and learning differences. This practical resource is an outgrowth of a series of emails she sent to relatives and friends about her life and the skills she was learning. Backed by the president of Chapel Haven, Diana's original ideas have been expanded into a helpful collection of advice and support for how to live an independent and meaningful life. Hints and suggestions are grouped under the major headings of Life, Consumer, and Financial Skills; Communication and Interpersonal Skills; Self-Care and Domestic Living; Getting Around; Stress Management; Taking Charge, Managing Priorities, and Solving Problems; and Safety and Emergencies.
