Building real-life skills
in real-life environments

For Youth and Adults with Autism (ages 8+)

AuSM classes and activities offer low-stress, accepting environments that promote learning and growth while celebrating neurodiversity. AuSM programs are conducive to youth and adults who fall within the wide range of the autism spectrum. Social skills classes are staffed at a 1:4 staff-to-participant ratio. If an individual is able to participate safely in a program but requires more support than 1:4 staffing provides, the individual may bring a Direct Support Professional (DSP). The DSP will be responsible for supporting the individual with communication, behavior, and daily living skills.

AuSM is committed to making your class experience positive and rewarding.

AuSM Social Skills Transportation Policy

For the safety of our AuSM Social Skills class participants, AuSM Social Skills students under age 18 will be released only to the parents/caregivers on the registration form. If someone other than those listed on the registration form will be providing transportation to a student under age 18, parents/caregivers must provide written documentation giving their permission. If a transportation provider arrives who does not have permission to provide transportation, the participant’s emergency contact will be contacted immediately. Transportation providers other than the parents/guardians of the participant are required to provide photo identification.
