Skill building and training occurs in the context of how learning a new skill will help a person achieve their chosen lifestyle. Habilitation must make sense to the person. People are motivated to change something when itís difficult or they just want to try something new. They will work hard to achieve more independence when they understand that growth may come from their efforts and that this growth will support their desired lifestyle or dream. Through the development of skill building strategies and person centered planning, all habilitation will be provided in this context.
