The “month” of Autism. A month just isn’t enough. I write this as a parent of a 19-year-old who lives everyday with Autism, as a mom who is exhausted 7 out of 7 days of the week, and as a voice for him in so many ways.

Youth have many options after high school, but often lack the necessary knowledge or skills to set obtainable goals and plan for attending college, entering a career, and living independently. The Center on Transition Innovations provides free, online courses for youth with disabilities that are designed to help them strengthen their self-determination and self-advocacy goals. Join staff from the Center on Transition Innovations to discover how these 3 online courses can be used to help youth identify their strengths, preferences, interests, and needs, set goals for their future, and make action plans for success.
