An Autism Improvised Transitions Program
For young women 16-22+. Focus is on self-advocacy, self-realization, personal safety, and well-being as they grow toward adulthood. (Requires a casual, short interview.)
Our transitions program Bright Paths helps our young women break the code and gain a better grasp of social cues and communication. Through role play, understanding context, and coached discussion in a supportive and non-judgmental environment, our group members hone their critical thinking skills and gain self-reliance toward success in all aspects of daily living.
Group size is limited to facilitate bonds of trust and friendship. Our group members often bring their own ideas about what they want to explore that might include topics like making friends, fitting in, grooming, social media, dating, personal safety, and sexuality. Meetings are held under the guidance of a transitions professional. Each series ends with an outing to a restaurant or other location chosen by the group.
Typically, SIX intensive weekly classes for highly motivated young women 16-22+. Must have language skills strong enough to participate in discussions that develop critical thinking and self-advocacy skills.
