Adult Services are for students that have exited the school system either with a diploma or with a certificate. The needs of our students do not stop once they become adults. In fact, for many their needs are even greater. Students at TAP do not “age out” of services. We continue to support them and provide services where needed.
Independent Living Home
Our mission is to improve the quality of life for adults with autism spectrum disorders by providing safe, affordable housing in a supportive environment that will allow participants to fully participate in all aspects of adult life. The Independent Living home will accomplish this through counseling, modeling, teaching and supporting residents in the following areas:
- Social Skills
- Recreation & Leisure
- Health & Personal Care
- Vocational Skills
- Daily Living & Money Management Skills
- Executive Function
Appropriate candidates for residency must attend TAP group services before consideration can be given to the independent living home.
Social Skill Groups
Structured, weekly meetings focus on communication, teamwork, cooking, recreational activities and community outings. Students in these groups help plan and organize group meetings and outings by compromising on choices, being flexible and trying new activities. These groups begin at 18 and continue through adulthood.
