Reach Toronto Autism Services for Youth and Adults
Reach Toronto is a Not for Profit organization, offering unique programs for adults and youth with ASD, Asperger’s Syndrome and Mild Intellectual Disabilities. Children with autism become young adults with autism who are faced with the challenge of leaving the support and safe environment of the school system. Our programs were created in response to that challenge. Reach Toronto provides life skills training, social skills as well as specific knowledge required to prepare transitioning high school students and young adults for either college, the workforce or simply to gain independence. We also address the needs for adults who successfully completed a college program and require the skills to enter the workforce. The goal of our Success on the Spectrum programs is to ensure successful transition in a safe and nurturing environment.
