Journey to Adulthood

Autism Ontario offers two programs for families navigating the journey from youth to adult. These include:

Journey to Adulthood Workshop

Journey to Adulthood is a 90-minute virtual presentation that introduces key topics in the transition from youth to adult. It is open to parents and caregivers of youth ages 12–18 who are in the AccessOAP program. This workshop is typically offered quarterly.

  • Parents and caregivers of youth ages 12–15 who are attending elementary or secondary education, and
  • Parents and caregivers of youth ages 16–20 who are attending secondary education.

Living Life to the Full
Brochure for Living Life to the Full

Living Life to the Full is a fun and engaging eight-week course that provides people from all walks of life with effective tools to maximize their ability to manage life’s challenges. The group-oriented course is based on the principles of cognitive behaviour therapy (CBT) which focuses on understanding how thoughts, feelings, and behaviours work together to impact well-being. Each 90-minute session focuses on a different topic, such as understanding unhelpful thoughts, engaging in enjoyable activities, coping with anger and solving daunting problems.

This program offers free opportunities for Ontario adults on the spectrum and caregivers of individuals on the spectrum to learn wellness and coping skills.
