    The Importance of Transitioning Adolescents on the Autism Spectrum into Adulthood: Plan for Success

    by

    Bohdanna Popowycz Kvam, M.Ed., BCBA, Behaviour Consultant

    Date: Friday February 3, 2017
    Time: 10 am to 12 noon
    Place: Studio, #301 – 3701 East Hastings Street, Burnaby BC
    TOPIC:   The Importance of Transitioning Adolescents on the Autism Spectrum into Adulthood: Plan for Success

     

    There is no ‘one way’ for every child to reach their potential as they grow. However there are strategies that will enhance and provide room for growth which can be capitalized as youth mature into adulthood.

     

    We will discuss how all stakeholders: family, school and community, can participate in providing, supporting and guiding adolescents towards their personal life goals specifically as they exit secondary school into the work force.

     

    1. When do we ‘start’ this transition? How can this look like?
    2. Social skills development
    3. Community organization/planning/transportation skills
    4. Pre-job skills into ‘real work for real pay’, internships/volunteer
    5. Jobs of the stakeholders

    SPEAKER:
    Bohdanna has been involved with children, teens and adults on the autism spectrum for over 25 years.  Her background includes teaching in the public school system in USA, being a Coordinator at the National Sports Centre for the Disabled outdoor program, and 12 years of working as a Clinical Director for one of Dr. Lovaas’ replication sites. She has had the honour of developing clinics in the USA, UK and Canada.

    Having extensive experience and knowledge in the autism field throughout the years, Bohdanna has the desire to pass on the torch.  She has been training and building up senior therapists and interventionists for many years.  She founded Harmony House in 2007 with the vision of opening schools, developing social skills programs and guiding children involved in home school situations under the umbrella of supporting families and children with autism.  Nowadays Harmony House continues to support families in various capacities.

    Bohdanna is a mother of two daughters and a son, ages 14 to 24.  Being a mother of children of a wide age range has helped her to understand the needs of people in different age groups.
    Coffee/Tea & Refreshments will be provided.

    Wendy, we have a roller coaster fan in our house as well!  Not sure how to connect without putting contact details on this public discussion board…

    Any roller coaster or amusement park enthusiasts out there?  Our (almost) 13 year old son is a fanatic and would love to connect with another tween/teen who shares a similar interest.  If you know of anyone, let’s try to connect.

    Thanks!
