The MENTOR Network believes that all adults deserve the chance to live as independently as possible in the communities that they call home. We recognize that each person with autism or other autism spectrum disorders (ASD) has unique needs and abilities, and our continuum of supports for adults can be customized for individuals with autism.
We focus our services on helping each adult become increasingly independent and active in their community. We partner with the individual, their family and other members of their support team to get to know them and design services around activities and goals that are important to them.
Individualized supports for adults with autism may include:
- Facilitated social skills groups
- Strengthening communication skills
- Strengthening social skills
- Sensory therapies
- Assisting with specialized/modified diet needs
The MENTOR Network strives to create individualized experiences that combine personal choice and community integration with professional oversight, family involvement and stability. Our staff members go through comprehensive training and provide as much or as little support as each individual needs. Because of our unique, personalized approach to service planning, we also offer the opportunity for individuals to participate in our other community-based programs for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities.
