6.2.3.1-debitfacts-youngadultsWe are proud to offer a summer program specifically for those ages 15 and older with Asperger’s Syndrome and Level 1 Autism. This program provides opportunities in 3 areas to help our participants prepare for the future.

Daily Living Skills

Developed directly from Chapter IV SPC 110 of the Wisconsin Medicaid Waivers Manual, this program provides training and education to improve the participant’s ability to live independently in his/her community. We focus on skill development in areas such as home maintenance, personal finances, and self management.

The Social Connection

Participants receive the opportunity to interact in a recreational environment, often resulting in life-long friendships. Team building exercises, group activities, and community events all contribute to help forge bonds with their fellow participants. Whether riding roller coasters or taking the train to Chicago, this is where social desire and social opportunity meet.

The Maplegrove Café

Guided by the Department of Vocational Rehabilitation (DVR) services, participants receive vocational training through working at the on-site Maplegrove Café. They apply, interview, train, and work at the café throughout the summer. Professional staff address executive functioning needs to provide on the job training. Participants leave with valuable skills and work experiences that they can add to their résumé.
