That is a big ambiguous question.  You're probably excited to go.

First, find out all you need to know about the program, what is expected, and follow their process for entrance into the program.  Find a contact that can help you get at all the information you need and give you time frames and any deadlines to get things done in the process of entering.

I'm making it sound more difficult than it is, but not knowing anything more about your situation, this is what I can come up with.

Regarding your family, young people leave their families every day to take a job in a new town, go to a different school, get married, change career, numbers of different reasons,so it is not unusual to leave your family.  It is normal for young people to be in transition, so all sounds normal.

Best wishes.

Dear Members,

I hope all of you are doing well. Last month I began searching for a residential program that would allow me to refine my daily living skills. My quest began with the Perkins School For The Blind in Watertown, Massachusetts. I soon discovered that they do not serve any blind adults over the age of twenty-two.

I also contacted the three Nfb training centers, but I was not satisfied with there program costs. The next day I came across the Rehabilitation Center For The Blind here in Daytona Beach, Florida. Last week my parents and I took a tour of the Center, and we were impressed with what we saw. The facilities were clean and all of the staff members were professional. I will be participating in the Independent Living Skills Program offered at the Rehab Center. How do I prepare to leave my family to attend training?
