Bridges to Adulthood for Individuals with Autism Spectrum Disorder
October 7, 2014
Kroc Center, 1315 Lime Kiln Rd., Green Bay

Presented by: Peter Gerhardt

Brief Description: 

This presentation will provide an overview of effective transition programming - at any age - with the ultimate goal being a life of dignity, competence, and quality. To this end, an overview and practical suggestions for transition planning (including the use of existing technology) will be presented along with issues related to community based instruction, social competence, sexuality and sexual safety, and quality of life concerns. 

Outcome objectives:

  • Identify the components of a comprehensive transition plan
  • Differentiate between social survival and social competence and the applications of both
  • Discuss the importance of direct, intensive instruction in adaptive behavior if community living is expected to be the outcome of an effective education.
  • Define the multiple constituent groups whose needs are to be met in the employment development process
  • Identify the three primary components of sexuality education.
