What is the L.I.F.E. program?
The L.I.F.E. (Learning, Independence, Friendship, and Education) program is available to adults between the ages of 18-30 years of age who have a diagnosis of Autism. Activities such as baking and selling goods will instill skills such as safe kitchen skills and money skills. The program’s emphasis on developing life skills, academics for everyday life, outdoor/physical activity, community activities, and day trips will be based on interests of the program’s participants.
Beginning September 6th, 2016, L.I.F.E. will be offered at Woodview Mental Health and Autism Services at our Mischa Weisz Centre for Autism Services in West Hamilton operating on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays-from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.
The cost of the program, based on a 1:3 staffing ratio, is $100 per day. If more intensive support is needed, one-on-one support is available at an additional cost.
