We work every day to empower lives by opening avenues of self-advocacy and advocating on behalf of others in a way that values equity, respect, dignity and diversity in all communities. The Autism Society of Florida is located in Orlando, Florida.
Adults with Autism
Autism is a lifelong condition and the available, necessary supports change as you move through major life phases. Some people with autism maintain successful careers in demanding fields, but unfortunately, statistics show that the majority of adults with autism are unemployed. The search for housing and residential supports can be challenging, and transportation options can be limiting. The Autism Society of Florida understands the pressing need for supports and programs for people on the spectrum across the lifespan. Your quality of life may depend on ongoing supports that are specific to your educational, medical, social, recreational, family and employment needs.
Are you a young adult with autism who is motivated to learn and practice social skills with other young adults?
The UCLA PEERS® program is
an evidence-based social skills intervention for motivated young adults, who are interested in learning skills to make and keep friends. During each group session, young adults are taught important social skills and are given the opportunity to practice these skills.
For adults with autism ages 25 to 35.
