Parent training, both on site at one of our centres and in the home, ensuring that successful intervention strategies are carried through in each of the child’s primary environments

Learn to Live program (Woodbridge location only)

The Learn to Live Program was created with the goal of demonstrating that adolescents and adults with ASD can learn and move towards independence and successful inclusion in the community.

Each learner’s goals are created to develop the specific skills that will enable community living in the least restrictive environment possible, and to promote independence, community integration, and individuality.

Target skills are designed to provide each individual with the opportunity to acquire and advance skills in the areas of:

• self-advocacy
• self- care
• mobility/transportation
• community-based living
• communication
• general health/lifestyle
• job skills/vocational training
• personal resource management
• community/social participation
• executive functioning/planning & time management
