Flexible Futures® – High School

Join Flexible Futures, the research-based curriculum designed to improve flexibility in children with autism and ADHD.  This program will offer both student and parent groups; the whole family will learn strategies they can work on together to improve generalization of skills. While children are in highly engaging group activities, the adults will participate in group sessions that combine lecture, role playing and observation of the teen group.

Topics for students include:

  • Understanding their strengths and challenges

  • How to be an effective self-advocate

  • Motivation

  • Transferring accommodations from IEP or high school to a college environment

  • Managing time

  • Setting long-term and short-term goals

  • Evaluating obstacles and making a Plan B

Topics for parents include:

  • Building independent skills in their young adult

  • Setting reasonable post-secondary goals

  • Handing off responsibilities to their children in a systematic and supportive manner

Who: College bound junior and seniors in high school.  Students who struggle with executive function, flexibility, and planning.  This group will not help with the academic skills for homework completion or studying for exams, but will help students develop their skills to set goals and make plans that anticipate obstacles and allow for adjustments.  The focus on self-advocacy will allow students to explore their strengths and identify areas where they should seek support.
