The Center for Autism Spectrum Disorders (CASD) is currently recruiting for its Flexible Futures clinical group this fall:

Flexible Futures teaches high school students with ASD how to improve executive function skills such as flexible problem-solving, and independent goal-setting, planning and organization. We strongly emphasize neurodiversity, self-advocacy, sustained motivation for long-term goals, handling stress, creating a positive reputation, and compromising skills. Group members will choose a goal that is important to them and work on achieving their goal for the duration of the group. This group is for diploma-track high school students with average or above average cognitive abilities. The group is led by a clinical psychologist with expertise in adolescent and adulthood transition issues in ASD.

Age Range:15-19
Start Date: November 2018 (24 weekly sessions)
Time & Location: Wednesdays, 3:45-4:45 pm, 15245 Shady Grove Rd., Ste. 350, Rockville, MD 20850
