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 more complex needs.
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. All participants will also receive three hours of individual therapy each term.
This program will be delivered at:
Autism Queensland, 437 Hellawell Road, Sunnybank Hills
8.30am-11.30am, Tuesday & Friday per 10 week term.
We are currently seeking expressions of interest for the program.
Recreation Group | Brisbane
