The North Georgia Autism Foundation (NGAF), in partnership with The University of Alabama, is starting a two-year project to implement STEPS into the community.
STEPS is the Stepped Transition in Education Program for Students and young adults with ASD. STEPS is an evidence-based program developed by Dr. Susan White, at the University of Alabama, designed to help young adults with ASD and related conditions develop skills to live more independently and work toward their vocational and educational goals. The current program is 12 sessions long, delivered over a period of 12 to 16 weeks, with an immersion experience to practice skills learned in the program.
Who is eligible?
NGAF and the University of Alabama are recruiting people with autism, aged 16 to 25, and their parent/guardian to participate in STEPS.
STEPS promotes essential skills for adult autonomy, including self-knowledge, self-determination, and self-regulation. Our goal is to help young adults reach their full potential by improving transitions from where they are to where they want to be.
