18+ Transition School

In partnership with Austin ISD, Greenleaf NCC is offering a new public school transition program for students who are 18 years old or older, have met state graduation requirements, and have autism or related neurodivergent conditions. Students in the program work toward mastery of their IEP (individual education plan) and post-secondary school goals through project-based learning in creative arts and technology, and through direct instruction in the classroom and in community settings.

The program runs M-F from 9 a.m. – 4 p.m. and operates in alignment with the Austin ISD School Year Calendar.

Typical Activities Include:

  • Direct instruction in Social Communication, Vocational and Independent Living Skills using Learn4IndependenceĀ® curriculum designed by Southwest Autism Research and Resource Center (SARCC) in Phoenix for adults with autism and related neurodivergent conditions
  • Opportunities for individual and collaborative project-based learning in the areas of arts and technology
  • Weekly sessions with guest instructors in the areas of mindfulness, yoga, nutrition and more!
    One-on-One support to ensure progress towards individual post-secondary goals (IEP)
  • Frequent community outings that provide opportunities for recreation, practice with public transportation, volunteer and internship experience, and independent living skills development
