WORKSHOPS WILL INCLUDE:

THE POWER OF PEER MENTORING:
Want to increase your son's/daughter's motivation AND have them included in the social fabric of their school? Come learn about the power of peer mentoring and the collaboration between ASRC, the Center of Excellence in Autism at CCSU and the Center for Independence in Glastonbury to pilot & make available this evidenced based and cost effective model in public schools. This approach is great for all students but can be a real "game changer" for children and adolescents with Aspergers Syndrome, High functioning autism, PDD-Nos, Nonverbal LD and social anxiety.

PRESENTATION ON DEPARTMENT OF REHABILITATION SERVICES (DORS) LEVEL UP PROGRAM:
DORS Level Up is managed by our Vocational Rehabilitation program, part of the Bureau of Rehabilitation Services (BRS), a division of the Department of Rehabilitation Services (DORS). DORS Level Up is all about  providing students with the tools, training and resources to work competitively and forge a path to independence. Working together we are building relationships with schools, families and the community and have created a collaborative partnership that introduces students who have an IEP, 504 plan or related challenges to new possibilities. Our goal is to help students be prepared to go out and find their place in the world.  Our services for DORS Level Up are designed for students ages 16 to 21.  Our vocational services may be made available in the school setting, outside of school hours and in the summer months. By teaming with DORS Level Up counselors, students can move forward to pursue their career goals based on interests and abilities.


The Oakdale Theater Complex is handicapped accessible.
