Click here to learn more and to watch a VIDEO about the program. Deadline to Register January 23rd! Transition to Life Program is coming to Kingston and Ottawa

Transition from secondary school to life is one of the most stressful times in the lives of young adults, but for individuals with autism, the event is overwhelming and anxiety provoking. Since many lack the skills and confidence to enter into post-secondary education or the workplace they often graduate from the school system to their parents’ basements. The intent of this program is to respond to the increasing needs of young adults with ASD who require specific preparation programs and direct support to ensure a successful transition experience to the world of enhanced education, employment and independence.

Register now for the April 2015 program!
