Launch into Life! North/West Vancouver

Transitioning into Adulthood Workshop

Series #2 Families with Higher Support Needs


Transitioning into adulthood and the community beyond high school can be challenging for individuals with autism and their families.  Comprehensive transition planning can help to manage the challenges during this time and maximize potential for each person to live a full and meaningful life. 

Launch into Life! helps families  to prepare for and respond to key life transitions, and guide the journey from adolescence to adulthood. It helps families to focus on discovering personal strengths and areas for growth based on their youth’s individual interests, abilities, and needs by answering three key questions:

   Where are we now? (assessment)       Where do we want to go? (goal setting)      How are we going to get there? (implementation)


We are pleased to offer the Launch into Life! workshop series that helps families to create an Individualized Transition Plan for their child and provides valuable information in the following domains:

  • Education and Employment
  • Health and Well Being
  • Communication and Social Relationships
  • Independent Living Skills and Self-Advocacy
  • Legal and Financial Issues
