Webinar - Social Emotional Wellness for Transition-aged Youth

Social emotional wellness is important for every person, particularly individuals with autism, who, according to recent research, are more likely to experience isolation from their peers and suffer from depression in adulthood. Social and emotional development promotes self-confidence and the ability to engage in meaningful relationships-- skills which can be invaluable for individuals with autism. The significance of social emotional learning for school-aged children is receiving increased attention in schools, yet once students with autism transition into adulthood, the services drop off. This panel presentation focuses on addressing the social and emotional needs of transition age youth and young adults with ASD. The expert presenters will discuss the needs for services and ongoing supports to ensure individuals with ASD emerge into adulthood with the skills and resources needed to lead healthy, productive lives.
