Transition Academy

A structured clinical program designed for adults with autism that helps build crucial independent living and career-readiness skills.
“The Transition Academy has helped me become more independent in my daily life. I used to get rides from my parents. Now I can get around on my own. One of my personal goals is to have a place of my own and get a job. I've been practicing interview questions a lot. I might have an interview coming soon!”
Will, Transition Academy Graduate
