Adult Life-Skills Program

Community Participation

Consistent with the mission to develop a continuum of services spanning early childhood and adulthood, the Institute, in 1984, embarked upon the development of adult program models.

Today, the Adult Life-Skills Program, funded by the New Jersey Division of Developmental Disabilities, provides personal and career-development services.

Supported-employment programs enable young adults with autism to enter the work force in jobs such as building maintenance, food service, word processing, merchandising, and data entry, and to continue to expand their skills in areas such as money management, leisure pursuits, and community participation.
