Are you looking for guidance for your college bound neurodivergent teen?

College can be an exciting time, but the transition from familiar routines at home and in high school, can be stressful for autistic students or for students with ADHD. 

The demands on self-advocacy and having to navigate completely new social situations can seem daunting.

 

As a parent, you are understandably worried, remembering their difficulties connecting with peers in high school and speaking up for themselves. You don't want them to have the same struggles in college!

Who are the groups for?

Is your teen a college bound high school student who:

  • wants to learn how to self-advocate

  • wants to be independent

  • wants to successfully adapt to college

  • is unsure about how to effectively communicate with others

  • is aware of their difficulties 

  • is excited but nervous about college

  • wants to connect with others in college

What are the goals of the groups?

The groups focus on building confidence and self-advocacy skills.
