Individual and Group Therapy

Supporting the social, vocational, and daily-living needs of adults with ASD

Building independence does not end at age 18 or 21

Individuals with autism can continue to develop greater autonomy, social and vocational competencies, and an enhanced quality of life throughout their adult years. This requires a different model of support and treatment, one designed for the needs of adults.

At The Center for Independence at CCSN, we conduct individualized comprehensive assessments to identify goals and the services/strategies individuals need to achieve those goals. We provide the services needed by adults to continue their growth and achievements, including individual and family treatment, social skills groups, and consultation to community agencies.

We help adults develop by focusing on:

  • Independent self care
  • Improving their ability to communicate and interact with others
  • Increasing community participation
  • Building professional expertise and skill
  • Living independently
  • Controlling disruptive and problem behaviors

Working on these areas improves their quality of life, reduces family stress, and eases the burden on parents who are unable to actively care for their adult.

The four components that lead to successful adult development:

  • Family and individual treatment (behavioral, cognitive behavioral, and supportive psychotherapy)
  • Social skills groups
  • Workplace and life skill coaching
  • Creating opportunities for the rehearsal and generalization of skills through consultation with community

We take an individualized approach, building a customized program with the services the individual needs to move forward. Our approach is research-based and uses intervention techniques proven to be effective for adults across the autism spectrum
