Transitioning between schools, programs and services as a young adult can create practical navigation challenges along with emotional turbulence. We welcome adults aged 18-25 with autism spectrum disorder (ASD), fetal alcohol spectrum disorder (FASD), Down syndrome and/or other intellectual or developmental disabilities who need additional support to transition from children and youth to adult developmental services.
The Young Adult team provides specialized intensive clinical support for a number of transitions, including high school to day program and high school to home and community participation. We use case management, behaviour therapy and/or occupational therapy to give our clients the greatest chance for successful transitions.
To be eligible for this service, clients must meet the following criteria:
- Age 18-25
- Referred to the Young Adult Team before age 21
- Transitioning out of school or in need of service coordination due to lack of community involvement
- Have behavioural needs such as aggressive behaviour
- Have occupational therapy needs such as sensory issues, support for skills related to activities of daily living
