About the training

Association of Programs for Rural Independent Living (APRIL) with the support of the University of Kansas will be hosting free meetings this year to learn more about how your Center for Independent Living is serving people with disabilities in your communities.  We will talk about how our organizations have changed as a result of the pandemic, and how these changes will impact what services look in the future.  Let’s dive into the world of IL, before, during and after a pandemic and begin to explore what work needs to be done now to make sure everyone has opportunities to participate in the communities of their choice in the way that makes most sense for them.

As we move out of the pandemic and begin to look at our 'new normal’, what will that mean for community participation?

  • Will independent living find itself in a 'new normal' with classes and activities being held both in-person and online?
  • What is your organizations' plans for serving consumers in the future?
  • How are you preparing your organization to pick up in-person programs and still maintain the online ones that have grown through this past year and half? 
  • What barriers or gaps can we begin to work on as a community to ensure everyone has the opportunity to participate in their communities, in-person or online?
