The NY Independent Living (IL) History & Philosophy tutorial is back online!
The product was recently updated with accessibility enhancements.
The original DVD product was developed by Western New York Independent Living (WNYIL). It was transitioned to on online tutorial a few years ago and posted on a New York State Independent Living Council (NYSILC) webpage. Both NYSILC and Adult Career and Continuing Education Services-Vocational Rehabilitation (ACCES-VR) have supported the product.
The online tutorial allows participants to gain a better understanding of Independent Living (IL) and the movement. Center staff are required to review the material and attain a competency of at least 70% on the related exam. Participants are allowed to print out a certificate upon successful completion. Board members, volunteers, consumers, and the general public are also encouraged to learn from the tutorial.
TO ACCESS THE PRODUCT, VISIT THE NYSILC WEBSITE AT, and click on the “tutorial” button located in the left hand margin of the homepage.
The original web design for the online tutorial was constructed by Sharp Dreams, Inc. The current enhancements were provided by ES11 Web Development.
