What Now? …Navigating Life After High School
April 11, 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm
Workshop Overview: This presentation will provide an overview of options for your teenager after high school, namely more school (post-secondary education or training), employment or a gap year(s). Typically a gap year after high school for young adults with autism means sleeping late, gaming more and losing skills and confidence. Some autistic individuals are not quite ready for the rigors of university, college or work and need support to build readiness skills before taking that next step. This workshop will provide an opportunity to discuss strategies and resources to help strike the right balance between continued learning, part-time employment and social/recreational opportunities once high school ends.
