Transitioning from childhood to adolescence and adulthood is a critical point in anyone’s life.
Links to Life is a capacity building program helping empower young adults with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) or developmental disabilities to live more independently.
What is Links to Life?
Utilising an evidence based behavioural intervention and teaching methods, our consultative approach capacity building program teaches functional living skills to adolescents and young adults (13 to 25 years old) that focus on promoting their increased independence.
Why choose Links to Life?
We offer a skill building program that is tailored to your adolescent’s needs. The capacity building program is designed through consultation giving the participant the best opportunity to achieve their goals.
How Links to Life works
The Links to Life program has several aspects that make it different and unique. Each program is personalised around the learner’s interests through identifying goals that are based on individual needs as well as what the family values. Instruction begins where the learner is most comfortable and builds the skill sets from there. We treat our learners as respected young adults and strive to push them to be the best that they can be. A range of essential everyday skills can include:
- Cooking and cleaning
- Brushing hair and hygiene
- Shopping and money management
- Community awareness and safety
