Launch into Life! Workshop Series
January 18, 2018 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pmFree
Transitioning into adulthood and the community beyond high school can be challenging for individuals with Autism Spectrum Disorder and their families.
Comprehensive transition planning can help to manage the challenges during this time and maximize the potential for each person to live a full and meaningful life.
The Launch Program at the Ability Hub was developed to help families prepare for and respond to key life transitions, and to guide the journey from adolescence to adulthood.
We are excited to announce a NEW workshop series called Launch into Life!

- Finding the right social and recreational programs in the community for your child
- Creating a shared vision for your child’s future
