14 Feb Transition to Adulthood for Young Adults with ASD
An Ability Life Solutions Video Favorite, Dr. Peter Gerhardt, whose esteem we cannot stress, has over 35 years of experience using Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) principles, serves on numerous professional advisory boards, and is the founding Chairman of the Scientific Council of the Organization for Autism Research (OAR). His expertise in education, employment, residential living, sexuality, and community access makes Dr. Gerhardt a professional whose views you want to know more about.
This webinar will provide an overview of some of the challenges that significantly impact transitions planning towards the goal of job training, getting jobs, and independent living. For many autistic individuals, graduation from high school (whether at age 18-or 21-years) is also a time of “aging out” of entitlement services guaranteed under IDEA. Unfortunately, research indicates that most graduates with autism will have a difficult time after high school. Dr.Gerhardt’s suggestions for post graduation is, we think, essential for you to have in your tool box to support more successful adult transitions.
