Jeremy and I are looking forward to co-presenting at the Autism Society of America’s national conference this week in San Diego, our hometown! We’ll be talking about: A Full Life with Autism: A Mother-Son Journey about Transitioning to Adulthood.
Here is the description: Jeremy and Chantal explain each from their own perspective why the transition out of school district services is difficult and how parents can prepare themselves and their young adult for this life change. They share information they learned while researching to write A Full Life With Autism (Macmillan 2012). Practical advice includes how to assist the young adult in creating a self-determined life; how to create a circle of supports to help the person reach his/her goals over a lifetime.
Future Horizons will be selling our book, A Full Life with Autism, at their booth. Please stop by to say hello!
