On the Town

Location:

County-Wide

Event Type(s): Education
Organization: Autism Society of Greater Akron
Description: On the Town is an educational series that works to build social skills, interaction with peers, and recreational and leisure activities, all while exploring community-based activities. The six-week series is open to “transition youth” - teens and young adults, ages 14-22. It is staffed by educational professionals (Special Education Teacher, Intervention Specialists, autism trained Paraprofessionals) with a 1:3 and 1:4 staff/participant ratio. Sessions are limited to 8 participants per session.

Individuals who are able to participate safely in the program, but require individual assistance with communication, behavior support, or daily living activities, can have paraprofessional attendance approved so the participant may have the most inclusive experience possible. For more information, email Lisa at info@autismakron.org or call her at 330-940-1441 x2. The Autism Society Greater Akron is committed to making each participant’s experience positive and rewarding, and like all of our programs, is conducive to the entire "spectrum" of autism or individuals with other different abilities.
