Independence for Adults with a learning disability

Hello and thank you for allowing me to join this awesome forum!!!

I am after your opinions please.  

As a parent, I absolutely know how hard it is to let your children  try things themselves, make mistakes and gain some independence.  As a parent of a person with a learning difficulty that job is sooo much harder!!  What I would like to know is what has helped you to create more independence for a person with a learning disability, particularly when they are adults that can still rely on you to do most things?  I know that sometimes when we stand back we can be truly amazed by what someone can achieve and I would like to know what has worked/not worked in creating as much independence as possible?  Thank you so much for any thoughts :)
