Online LOCAL CT & NY Metro LifeNet Info Session, 9/28/22, 5:30 PM – 6:30 PM ET
September 28 @ 5:30 pm - 6:30 pm, Free
DESCRIPTION: LifeNet, the Asperger/Autism Network’s team-based support program, helps autistic adults navigate independent living. LifeNet is a private-pay program founded by AANE in Massachusetts in 2019 and is now available in Connecticut and the New York metro area. Come meet LifeNet CT and NY leadership and staff and learn how the LifeNet team optimizes independence for autistic adults in their day-to-day lives.
The LifeNet program expanded from Massachusetts to Connecticut in 2021 and to the New York metro in 2022. LifeNet now supports 70 adults ages 21 through 89. Depending on the LifeNet adult’s individual priorities, LifeNet can help with executive functioning tasks such as managing appointments, budgeting, and meal planning, or other priorities such as finding community opportunities, gaining housing, and forming provider and social connections.
LifeNet has a limited number of openings for eligible CT and NY metro adults to begin receiving support this fall. In advance of the Info Session, those interested can get a head start on the free application process by visiting the LifeNet page and clicking the appropriate state button (in green) to complete the initial form.
