Great New Resource for Teens and Young Adults with Autism

In a wonderful collaboration between Advocates Inc. and Autism Alliance we are very proud to

present our new:

 

“Life Skills and Learning Center”

 

This new program is located in Ashland and will offer teens, 18 to 22 years of age and young adults 22 and over wonderful new services and support many specific to autism.

 

Our priority population is young adults on the

autism spectrum who should be ready for school to work experiences either outside of the school setting or in addition to their schooling.  Students can

participate in this program either full time or part-time as individually designed by our staff in

collaboration with you and your school district.

 

This is NOT a traditional day program.  It is

individualized, supported by staff with autism

experience and provides a curriculum to support

and facilitate young adults’ transition into the

community and workplace.  Behavioral and clinical services within the program will be overseen by our Board Certified Behavioral Analyst (BCBA) who has many years of autism experience.

 

Here are just some of our great resources:

Full array of Employment/Vocational Services

Including:

  • Job Coaching
  • Speech and Sensory Integration Occupational Therapists
  • BCBA on Staff
  • Highly Trained Staff
  • Community Resources
  • State of the Art Learning Center
  • Individualized and Flexible Programming

Our opening date is scheduled for July 1, 2013
