Above / Summer Teen Scene Life Skills Program will take place at Little Friends’ Main Campus, located at 140 N. Wright Street in Naperville.

Many individuals with autism and intellectual disabilities have the means to master life skills and community skills; yet, many never do.

In order to address this challenge, a unique opportunity to empower the lives of these individuals has been made possible through the generosity of the Driskill Foundation, enabling Little Friends to offer a two-week program for children with autism, entering grades 7 through 9 and who are reading at a third-grade level or above.

Sign up now for 2-week program, July 23 through August 3, 2018

This unique, first-of-its-kind “Teen Scene Life Skills Program” will focus on promoting independence in everyday skills. The two-week program will teach a core set of life and community skills to students with the goal of partial to full independence.

Life-changing skills will be broken down and taught systematically, not only giving students the ability and confidence to do more, but also encouraging parents by showing them what their children are truly capable of. Some students will need more support than others, but most individuals can master grooming, chores, basic cooking, budgeting, shopping and activities like bowling, trips to the movies, dining out and more.
 
The program will be held from 9AM to 3PM Monday through Friday, July 23 through August 3, at Little Friends’ Main Campus, located at 140 N. Wright Street in Naperville. The cost per student is $75.
