Adult Programs

Office-Based Adult Program

 

Our adult groups are comprised of individuals aged 18-30 who are either employed, seeking employment, enrolled in post-secondary education or work training programs, or looking to learn social skills needed for successful adult living.

 

Adult groups also focus on an awareness of daily skills needed for independent living. Group members are encouraged to set short term goals with their parents and, as a family, focus on learning 1-2 independence skills each semester. 

 

Participants will learn:

  • Social skills to prepare and be successful in the workplace

    • Following directions

    • Positive attitude

    • Interview skills

    • Appropriate topics of conversation in the workplace

    • Accepting orders from a boss

    • Getting along with co-workers

    • Managing frustration and anger on the job

    • Reading and responding to social cues

    • Working as part of a team

    • Self advocacy
