Launch into Life! Workshop

Launch into Life! Workshop

This activity has finished and is no longer running.

Transitioning into adulthood and the community beyond high school can be challenging for individuals on the autism spectrum and their families.

Autism Edmonton is excited to offer Launch into Life! – a workshop designed to help families/caregivers of youth to prepare for and respond to key life transitions and create an Individualized Transition Plan.

The Launch Program, an initiative of The Sinneave Family Foundation, began by helping families create individualized transition plans one family at a time. Over time, the program evolved into a group-based workshop format to allow families to come together to share their experiences, connect, and learn from each other. This informative and hands-on workshop provides valuable information on the following topics:

Understanding and preparing for key transitions across the lifespan.
Managing health and mental health issues in autism and other neurological differences.
Navigating the change from pediatric to adult health and support care systems.
Finding the right social and recreational programs in the community.
Creating a shared vision for the future.
Developing life and vocational skills.
Exploring volunteer and work opportunities.
Understanding housing and supportive programming options in adulthood.
Legal and Financial issues including guardianship and program funding.
