Website: Building Futures



The goal of the Building Bridges project is to provide the person-centered, coordinated, and cooperative programming necessary to facilitate the transition of students with Autism Spectrum Disorder and cognitive and developmental disabilities from school to the adult world of work, community living, and community membership. Through the use of person-centered planning (PCP) tools students and their families develop a transition plan and identify a vision for the future. The plan identifies activities designed to promote a student’s independence, self-advocacy, and decision-making skills.
