Life Skills for Transitioning Adults Workshop (FREE)

Herkimer BOCES (352 Gros Blvd. Herkimer, NY 13350)

Saturday, October 26, 2019 (9:00am - 12:00pm)

Arc Herkimer is proud to present this FREE workshop designed for people ages 14+ who are on the Autism Spectrum, along with their Caregivers/Supporters, and Educators.


Author and Autism Advocate Patricia Weaver will be presenting the workshop. Her book "Stuff You Need to Know: A Guide for Young Adults with Autism" will be available for purchase ($15).

Recognizing that there is not a direct correlation between cognitive ability and the ability to troubleshoot life’s challenges, parents and educators are challenged with teaching these skills in an adult appropriate manner with very few tools available. Patricia Weaver will use peer stories/discussion, activities/worksheets, lecture, and a question & answer session to go over: Hygiene, Healthy Living, Time/Money Management, Personal Awareness, and more!

Please REGISTER in advance so we can get a count. Light refreshments will be served.

If you have any additional questions, please call 315-574-7000.
