Young Adult Connection
Studies have shown if you have a core group of friends, you will have overall good health and social life. In 2019, we created a pilot program for young adults on the spectrum to focus on making long lasting friendships while working on social, life, and soft job skills. The first small group, Jigsaw, meets monthly and plans their own activities. The program has expanded to several small groups for individuals with autism over 19 years old and up. If you would like to sign up to be part of the Young Adult Connection follow this link to be on the waitlist when the next group forms.
ACC has partnered with two local counseling centers to provide counseling. ACC will help fund the cost of several counseling sessions for individuals with autism or family members affected by autism. Trained therapists specializing in autism will strive to help individuals and families through difficult parts of the autism journey.
