At Georgia Autism Skills for Life, Touchstone Principles are our core beliefs and methods to make social skills and emotional regulation skills more accessible for adults with autism.
1. Interventions are based on the individuals learning style
2. Behavior is Communication
3. Skills are pre-taught
4. Teach visually
5. Model desired skills and behavior
6. Teach today for future independence
Georgia Autism Skills for Life (GA-ASFL) was specifically created to meet the ongoing social-educational needs of adults with autism spectrum disorders (ASD) who have completed available education programs but will never complete their need and ability to grow and learn. GA-ASFL teaches social readiness skills in a research-based model that is effective and replicated.
As of today, our chapters have served more than 100 adults with autism. The chapters are led by educators, therapists, life coaches, and mentors who have spent years serving individuals with autism. Based in Atlanta, Georgia, GA-ASFL ensures that one night a week, three times a month, adults with ASD will get to participate in pleasurable, structured activities with a consistent group of knowledgeable and supportive friends.
Each county based chapter meets three times a month in the evening where we work to generalize taught skills and support a family's ability to transport their son or daughter.
