The Charlotte TEACCH Center offers goal-oriented sessions for our adult TEACCH clients and their caregivers. They are an opportunity for you to learn more about your autism spectrum disorder and how to accomplish current goals in a weekly appointment at the Charlotte TEACCH Center.
Who can attend? These sessions are for TEACCH clients who have a diagnosis of an autism spectrum disorder.
How long do sessions last? Each weekly session lasts 50 minutes. A set of sessions may last from 2 to 6 weeks in length and are offered Mondays through Friday.
Who conducts the sessions? One or two Autism Specialists work with each client.
Will parents or caregivers be involved? TEACCH welcomes the involvement of parents and caregivers. If you are your own guardian, we will need your consent to involve family members in your care.
What can you do? Think about what goals you and your family would like to work on. Goals can include: Communication Issues, Social Difficulties, Self Help Skills, Help with Change Management, Job/Vocational Support, Anxiety and Related Mood Concerns
