The lack of professional preparation from trained therapists and proper communication and social transitional training techniques have led to very limited opportunities for adults with learning disabilities locally and nationally.
Humble, Texas (PRWEB) May 17, 2016
Including Kids removed the age cap on their Center for Community Inclusion program with the hopes of broadening opportunities for the social advancement of young adults with autism. The CCI program serves to provide it’s participants with the necessary life skills needed in order to become as independent as possible for a maturing adult. Removing the age cap from years 16 - 22 to 16 and onward would make Including Kids one of the very few programs in the Greater Houston area with professional treatment that places an emphasis on assisting adults of any age with autism to become successfully employed and active members of their communities.
Up to a staggering 90% of young adults on the autism spectrum are not meaningfully employed. A considerable amount of reasoning behind this disappointing statistic can be fairly attributed to the limited resources currently available for young adults with autism that are transitioning into the job field. The lack of professional preparation from trained therapists and proper communication and social transitional training techniques have led to very limited opportunities for adults with learning disabilities locally and nationally.
Including Kids started their CCI program in 2015 with a fierce agenda to fight the disadvantageous odds against young adults with autism. With the support of Including Kids board certified behavior analysts and registered behavior technicians, participants will learn how to develop proper skills for applied academics, prevocational/vocational skills, domestic skills, leisure skills, safety skills and community skills. This particular Center for Community Inclusion program is best fit for those participants that have adaptive behavioral skills which can be addressed with less intensive support services.
