Half-Day Workshop

Seminar: Implementing Evidence-Based Autism Practices For Successful Transitions Into Adulthood

Despite the best efforts of schools and families, some students with autism do not experience the same degree of success and personal fulfillment in adulthood compared to their nondisabled peers or to students who are receiving services under IDEA categories other than autism. What factors drive these differences? What variables lead to stronger adult outcomes? This workshop will offer valuable strategies for achieving independence, including interventions for self-regulation and mindfulness. Learn how to avoid missteps and resolve ongoing challenges using evidence-based practices and the steps to create a comprehensive plan to implement these tools in the workplace, for transportation, and in after-work settings.
