(September 7, 2017) The McNeese Autism Program will offer its BRIDGES program this fall for adolescents and young adults diagnosed with Autism Spectrum.
BRIDGES - Building Respect and Independence by Directing, Guiding and Encouraging Socialization – was introduced this summer on campus to “bridge a gap” between the increasing need for services for youth ages 14-18.
The program will run from 3:30-6:30 p.m., Mondays through Thursdays, Oct. 2-Nov. 30. Insurance and private pay options are available.
According to Lettie Goings, director of the program, BRIDGES consists of focused skills for independence that will help support employment and social success for adolescents and young adults.
MAP has been providing applied behavior analysis therapy for patients diagnosed with ASD since 2008. Currently, MAP provides not only one-on-one ABA therapy to patients, but it also works to provide more specialized treatment programs such as BRIDGES.
