During the presentation, Jan made reference to some other resources.
In this presentation, Lisa Bridle from Community Resource Unit (CRU) in Queensland relates the story of her son Sean’s transition to moving out of the family home. Jan referred to this story in reference to the skills needed to move out of home. When he first moved out, Sean couldn’t iron. The family employed someone to take care of the ironing while Sean developed other skills.
My Share House
In this presentation, Ruth and Rhonda Faragher relate the story of Ruth’s journey to moving out into a share house with one of her friends. Jan referred to this story in relation to problem-solving. Ruth’s bin was stolen, and Ruth came up with the solution.
