Matthew is a TRIPIL Youth success story.
He was having memory and organization issues that impacted his daily life. He wanted to overcome this barrier.
Our staff used a variety of tools to assist Matthew to achieve this goal. The resources that were tried included different scheduling apps that could be used on his phone, using blank note pads, and various calendars. Matthew tried a number of different daily planners, until July 2015, when he came across one in a style that he liked and found easy to use.
Matthew now has a calendar and a notepad in his planner, and it has been almost 3 months he has been using it. He has remarked several times about how easy it is to remember his appointments and keep track of necessary tasks using this planner. This simple change helped him complete his course of study at a technical school and begin planning for his future.
Sometimes, success starts with small steps. If you are a young person with a disability who needs help with overcoming barriers, please contact Transitional Paths Independent Living.
