Autism for Lifelong Learning

 

Autism for Lifelong Learning (ALL) is designed to provide supported employment, competitive employment, and community participation support services to adults with autism. As a part of Misericordia University’s Autism Center, ALL’s primary goal is to enable the adults involved in the program to ultimately obtain employment to the fullest extent of their respective abilities. In addition to being prepared to secure employment, the adults will also be exposed to various non-profit groups and interact with the broader Wyoming Valley community."

The ALL Program exists because of significant gaps in the continuum of care and interventions for individuals on the Autism Spectrum of Disorders across the life span. The ALL Program also offers services to adults on the ASD with an accompanying diagnosis of Intellectual Disabilities. Adults diagnosed with autism in Northeastern Pennsylvania do not have opportunities to participate in a program that is specialized to meet their unique needs in a program designed to lead to supported or competitive employment. The ALL Program with the resources of Misericordia University, will meet this need, which will assist program participants to live and function to their highest potential.
