New Program for Adults funded by Unity for Autism

Transition to Adulthood Group – Life skills

Thanks to a generous grant from Unity for Autism, Spectrum Intervention Group (www.spectrumig.com) is pleased to announce the next session of our Transition to Adulthood Group – Life Skills (TAG -LS).

When: Tuesday evenings from 5:30-8 pm – April 14, 2015 to June 30, 2015

Who can participate: This session will be for participants aged 18-24 with autism or related disorders. (**please note the change in age for this session)

Individuals who have not received services at our centre previously will need to participate in a screening to determine suitability for this group. Participants need to be able to function in a 1:2 or 1:3 ratio.

Where: 21 Grenfell Crescent (some programing will occur at our community partner Grenfell Catering at 19 Grenfell Crescent)

What we will do: This life-skills group will focus on helping young adults acquire essential life-skills necessary to function as independently as possible as adults. Goals are tailored to the group but may include: food preparation, cooking, communication with others, bullying, job readiness, conflict resolution and social skills.

Our Staff: All the program content will be delivered by instructors trained in applied behaviour analysis (ABA) principles and procedures. The program will be supervised by Kristen Copeland, BCBA, MA, and Lynne Thibodeau, BCBA, M.Ed.

Cost: $100 for this 12 week program. This program is subsidized by the generous grant from Unity for Autism.
