VCIL Personal Assistant Services and Self Training Options

VCIL staff can put together a self-training packet designed to address your particular needs and interests. Included in each study packet are materials taken from the Toolkit library, some fact sheets and, where appropriate, forms and models to help you design the management program that most suits your needs. For more information, call the I-Line at I-800-639-1522 and ask to talk with someone about the PAS Management Toolkit.
