Toward a Future of Flourishing: Supporting Strong Transitions for Young People with ASD

  • Utah Valley University (map)

This keynote presentation will focus on what we know works best for equipping students with the skills, supports, opportunities, and relationships that set them on a course a "good life” during and after high school. Dr. Carter will highlight current research addressing effective approaches for supporting students to (a) access rigorous learning opportunities in their school, (b) connect to relevant school and community experiences that prepare them for adulthood, and (c) develop supportive relationships with peers and caring adults. He will focus the ways in which schools, families, service systems, and communities can work in tandem to create a future of flourishing for young people with autism.
