The ILE Difference
Independent Living Experience (ILE) is a customized support service for adults with disabilities. Focusing on the areas of Employment, Independent Living, and Social Skills, ILE services are 100% community-based and individualized to each client. At ILE, we understand the importance of providing quality supports that both our clients and their families deserve. Our innovative, community-based service model for adults, with varying exceptionalities, provides customizable supports based on the client’s needs and their desire for independence.
ILE offers a bank of hours to target the development, maintenance and generalization of:
- Executive Functioning
- Employment Support
- Independent Living
- Social Engagement
ILE Consultants typically have professional experience as Special Education Teachers, Vocational Counselors, Therapists and Counselors, and in Behavioral Health.
ILE Consultants also receive relevant and on-going supervision and professional development to ensure quality services and supports are provided. More than 75% of ILE Consultants have earned a Master’s degree or are actively pursuing a Master’s degree.
Clients and ILE Transition Consultants work together to create a support schedule that works with the Client’s needs. We provide flexible schedules, however, the team is not considered 24/7 “on call”
No, ILE is not a supported living program or group home setting.
Clients live on their own or with a roommate in the community. Our Transition Consultants may provide some coaching in their home to help maintain or generalizing independent living skills, however our clients are able to safely live in the home without 24/7 oversight.
We are not an employment agency but support clients as they pursue a career and gain work experience.
Many of our clients need support in obtaining or maintaining employment. ILE Consultants work closely with clients who are interested in further pursuing employment based on their interests, experience and skill.
Our team provides coaching and mentoring during each client’s personal career search while also providing support across the areas of: pre-employment skills, resume and cover letter development, interview skills, researching and tracking all things job search related.
