6 Week Program Offered Quarterly
We are excited by this new program that will help all of us move into adult life! “Life Transition” covers topics that are necessary for adult independence including personal safety, emergencies and appropriate use of technology. The curriculum is supported by an accompanying workbook published by the SDC, “Stuff You Need to Know-A Guide for Adults with Autism” that conveys the concepts through an approach we call “Peer Stories”, relatable narratives in a mature tone that help the reader follow along and personalize the topic. The workbook utilizes a specialized tool called BITS™ (Blended Icon & Text System) that supports the accessibility of written materials. Program participants are taking their first steps in common challenges like choosing friends on social media, making healthy choices and living in a balanced way. The “Life Program” is run depending on participant demand, please contact us for more information and check our workbook!
