Transition Education:

OFA incorporates transition education when developing IEP’s for all transition-age students, generally 16 and older. Transition education helps each student set post-school goals and work toward individual career and life goals.

Vocational Services:

At age 14, students begin preparing for independent living by working with teachers/coaches to identify strengths and vocational interests. One for Autism helps students prepare for independence in both their personal and work lives by providing on-site training as well as community integrated vocational programs. Through relationships with local businesses and organizations, One For Autism provides students with opportunities to work and gain on-site experience working with skilled, special needs students.

Life Skills Training:

One for Autism Academy places a strong emphasis on teaching students the necessary life skills to work, socialize, remain safe, care for their personal needs and lead the most independent lives possible. Relying on the methods of behavior analysis, One For Autism Academy focuses on the most effective strategies for teaching skills to each student’s optimal level of independence. These strategies include shaping, chaining, discrete trial and naturalistic teaching procedures.

We help students gain self-confidence and greater independence by working closely with families and schools to find approaches that work for students.

Daily living skills are an important part of each’s student’s education. As part of our daily living skills curriculum students learn about:

  • Time management
  • Personal hygiene
  • Food preparation
  • Personal finance and money management
  • Transportation solutions
