Attention Youth with ASD and Their Caregiver(s)/Parent(s):
Register Now for the May/June Session of Transitioning Together*
A Wonderful New, FREE Opportunity for Youth with ASD
Transitioning Together is an eight-week online program to help teenagers with ASD, and their caregiver(s)/parent(s), plan their futures after secondary school.
For the first time in Canada, Transitioning Together is being delivered by local trained professionals in March-April and May-June 2021.
What’s In It For Me?
- If you are someone between the ages of 14-17 with ASD who communicates verbally, attends secondary school and wants help developing your own plan as you transition into adulthood, this is for you.
- The small on-line groups of people like yourself are a great way to connect with others in a comfortable format. Transitioning Together has resulted in many lasting group member friendships.
- You will develop a personalized plan with help from your peers, group facilitators and your caregiver(s)/parent(s)/family.
- Your Mom, Dad, or other adult(s) in your life will attend separate on-line sessions of their own to learn how they can support your plan.
- You will need access to a device with a working camera and internet access.
Brock University is evaluating the outcomes of the program. The participation of you and your caregiver(s)/parent(s) in the evaluation research is appreciated. For research purposes, participants will be randomly assigned to groups.
