Roses for Autism's Career Training Program (CTP) provides a highly specialized, inclusive transition from "School Days to Pay Days" for individuals with labels of autism who have widely varied needs during this important stage of their lives.
At the CTP, we recognize that autism is a complex condition affecting an individual's ability to move, interact with others, and communicate in typical ways. These observable behaviors result from complex neurological differences in Movement, Anxiety, Communication and Sensory (MACS) systems of the brain. Our unique approach takes the individual's MACS systems differences into account, identifying what they are and creating individualized instructional approaches to maximize learning and develop long-term needs for support and accommodations.
Additionally, individuals with labels of autism vary greatly in learning styles, individual strengths, career interests and abilities, and training needs. Therefore, we overlay the MACS approach with the services found in the tabs below. Each training plan involves an opportunity to participate in inclusive, natural, real-work settings, paired with short-term intensive 1:1 or small group instruction as needed, to meet each participant's needs, abilities, interests, and personal goals. Most importantly, these services include ongoing evaluation before and after job placement.
