"As we let our light shine, we unconciously give other people
permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our fear,
our presence automatically liberates others."

-Marianne Williamson

Welcome to CyberCIL Skills Training!!!

Hello, my name is Heather Urick and I am the new independent living skills facilitator. I have a progressive, neurological disease called Friedreich’s Ataxia. Diagnosed at age 12, I had a spinal fusion at age 14, I began using a wheelchair at age 19, and, finally, lost the ability to stand at age 27. I have worn many “hats” in my life. In 2004, I completed my degree in Human Services. I am an honorary member of the National Association of Social Workers (N.A.S.W.). I was nominated Ms. Wheelchair Arizona 2005. But by far my greatest achievement was the acquisition of my service dog, Ruth. I look forward to hearing from you and helping you achieve your goals! I can be contacted at

We have posted some assessments, links and Independent Living modules for
your use and information.

Below you will find resources to aid in the development of
independent living skills.

In this area are some evaluations and other items to help you learn to live as
independently as possible. This information has been developed by various
people and agencies, and we have attempted to give credit where credit is due.
If you find any omissions, please let us know so that we can credit it
correctly. If you have anything which you would like added to this area,
please send it to us with directions on who to credit.
