Autism Society San Francisco Bay Area to host Think Tank on Adult Autism Day Programs November 12.
The population of young adults with more severe forms of autism aging out of the school system is growing rapidly. Adult day programs/supported employment designed to serve them are at often at capacity with little room to grow, given the significant financial constraints and high costs of facilities and staff. This population often presents multiple challenges and the need for a supportive community ("home away from home"). This Think Tank brings together area leaders to discuss how to expand services. Due to space constraints this event is invitation-only, but we will provide a written summary on this website. Please feel free to contact us for more information.
