I am able to travel all the way to college and back without support
My name is SP and I live at home with my parents and brother. I attend college and I am enrolled on a Drama and Acting group, which I attend every Friday.
Before Sans Soucie started supporting me, I found it difficult to be around unfamiliar people and had no concept of stranger danger and it limited my access to the community. I was getting picked up by taxi from home to college and back.
Sans Soucie put together an extensive Travel Training Plan which was clear, with manageable stages. For a number of weeks, I travelled on the train with my support worker to and from college. In the process I was learning how to read and understand train timetables. Today I am able to travel all the way to college and back without support – which I am very happy about.
I now have the independence and I travel alone. I now know how to deal with bus and train delays and know how to read the timetables.
