Why choose to participate in AutismUp’s Full Life Academy?

With hopes and dreams at its center, Full Life Academy is the lens through which we view each individual. Full Life Academy is curriculum-based with personalized designed lessons to meet the specific goals of each participant. The eight essential aspects of a full life are integral to our Person-Centered Planning Process, Skills Inventory, and Skills Training.

The essence of Full Life Academy is listening to an individual’s hopes and dreams and helping them create a plan, this plan drives the individual’s path through Full Life Academy. We look at the individual’s abilities and determine where new skills are needed by performing age-appropriate assessments. Finally, it’s time to learn. We create a plan to learn skills through lessons that are personalized for each individual.
