We’re developing both face to face and online programs to help young people develop the skills and strategies to live independent lives. These programs will focus on increasing their knowledge of problem solving and goal setting strategies.
Our introductory program ‘Skills for Independent Living’ has been designed by an experienced Occupational Therapist, Kate Horstmann, specifically for young people looking to become more self-sufficient in the family home, preparing to move out or making improvements for those already living on their own.
This program teaches skills such as problem solving, goal setting and self-reflection applied across practical areas such as self-care, domestic chores, scheduling or time management, budgeting and community access.
We are currently working to develop programs with more in-depth content on specific areas of need (i.e. finances, work readiness). These programs will be designed based on the feedback of people with ‘lived’ experience to guide us on the needs of those living with Asperger’s.
More information will be provided on these programs as they are developed.
