After High School What Comes Next?

The University of New Hampshire Institute on Disability and Strafford Learning Center are collaborating on a project to assist high school students with Autism Spectrum Disorders and their families to plan for the transition to adult life.

The Project is called Family-Centered Transition Planning. High school students age 16 and above diagnosed with an Autism Spectrum Disorder are eligible to participate.


START Graduation

In 2008, Strafford Learning Center approached Great Bay Community College with a unique idea. We asked them to collaborate with us on a program that would blend and braid resources from schools, agencies and families, and would offer a new and innovative job training option to students and young adults who need some extra support to get into the world of work.
