Autism Life Skills and Empowerment Strategies: Preparing for Real Life
Presented by Chantal Sicile-Kira
With advice and reflections from adults on the autism spectrum, as well as personal experience as an advocate and parent of a young adult with an autism spectrum disorder, Chantal Sicile-Kira will share hard-won wisdom and practical tips on how parents and professionals can prepare their students of all ages and ability levels (and themselves) for adulthood. This session will provide practical strategies for teaching necessary life skills, focusing on the student’s strengths, developing work or career skills, preparing for college, and building on a person’s strength or special interest to create community connections and employment opportunities.
