New Steps | Brisbane
Modelled on Autism Queensland's popular Studio G program, New Steps is for young adults on the autism spectrum aged 17-25 years with additional needs who would benefit from being part of a more structured program and a smaller group. A maximum of eight people will attend, and all participants will be supported by autism specialists and creative industries/IT qualified mentors.
Like Studio G, New Steps focuses on capacity and skill building, but this more structured program ensures attending individuals receive the additional supports they require to develop the essential and day to day IT skills that will help them transition into the community, study or assisted work programs.
The mentor will provide participants with:
- An introduction to digital literacy programs
- Foundation skills in creative digital media programs.
In addition to building their IT skills, participants will benefit from developing communication and social participation skills within a structured setting.
This program will be delivered at Autism Queensland Sunnybank Hills on Tuesdays and Thursday, 1pm-4pm, over 10 weeks. Please note this is a fee for service program.
Commencing Tuesday 23 April 2019.
