Adulting: It’s harder than it looks! Education Session
March 12 2019 @ 6:30 PM - 8:30 PM
Adulting: It’s harder than it looks! Helping your child with autism be successful after high school – including university and employment.
Becoming a legal adult at 18 years in Alberta and graduating from high school are two transition points that can be challenging – even scary for individuals on the Autism Spectrum and their parents. Developing a plan for “life after high school” can help to maximize the chances your child will be successful as they pursue continued education (post-secondary studies) and employment.
This session will support families and provide valuable information about the following topics: How to create a shared vision for your child’s future. Understanding next steps after high school. Managing health and mental health issues in adulthood. Developing pre-employment skills. Legal and financial issues including guardianship and program funding at age 18. Discuss how the Launch Program might support your child as they transition to adulthood.
