Next Steps: Transitioning to Independence, a 2-day ASD conference featuring Temple Grandin

Temple Grandin and ASD Experts
presented by Leading Edge Seminars

Jane Mallett Theatre, St Lawrence Centre for the Arts, 27 Front St E, Toronto, ON M5E 1B4

This presentation is hosted by Leading Edge Seminars and Autism Ontario. MC by Michael McCreary

Participating presenters include Temple Grandin, PhD; Rosemary Condillac, PhD, C. Psych; Tara Connolly, MA, BEd; Alan Kriss; Yona Lunksy, PhD; Daniel Roth; Alana Sheilds-Barker; Jonathan Weiss, PhD

Independence, self-reliance, self-determination and being on one’s own are some of the hallmarks of adulthood. Temple Grandin and Canadian ASD experts will offer their expertise and success stories to create a toolkit of resources you can use to support the transition of your clients to post-secondary education and to independent living.

You will learn about employment options that recognize and value different ways of thinking and brain strengths alongside programs and strategies for negotiating complete health care access, as well as financial planning. You will also learn about how to nurture confident independent individuals through extracurricular activities and programs.

Many transitions are encountered on the path to becoming an adult and these include transitions to higher education, into the workforce, towards financial responsibilities, new social and peer relationships and living outside the family home or in supportive living for the first time.

These changes are challenging for everyone but for individuals on the Autism Spectrum, even more so. However, with the right support, these rites of passage can be not only successful but fulfilling and self-empowering. This conference is designed to provide you with research and experienced-based tools, strategies and resources to empower individuals on the Spectrum to take the next step.

You will learn —
• How to create supports for transitioning to post-secondary education
• How to find or create programs that will teach social skills
• How to implement physical exercise options to support physical and mental health.
• How to understand and support financial planning and money management for individuals with ASD
• Options for employment opportunity for people with ASD categorized by memory strength, thinking style and non-verbal skills.
• Options for independent living with case studies and examples

This workshop may be eligible for Continuing Education Credits/Units (CECs/CEUs) by professional organizations in Canada/Ontario serving mental health professionals. Please click here for more information.
