TechieForLife Offers New Technical Skills Program for Autistic Young Adults with Higher Support Needs
TechieForLife (TFL) is excited to announce its newest program, Technical Skills College or TSC. TFL is expanding to serve a wider group of students within the autistic and neurodivergent communities who require more support and may not be socially or emotionally ready enough to navigate a university experience or benefit from it. With this new cohort, TFL is excited to offer services to another underserved and underutilized population.
This new group will focus heavily on technical skills and earn certifications in fields such as prompt engineering for AI, video game design, computer programming, IT, digital design/UI, and UX. This cohort of students will also develop critical life skills while benefiting from the same foundational focus of development that has made TechieForLife so successful with Neuro-developmental Mentoring™ (NDM) being our primary foundational intervention.
This is a great opportunity for autistic individuals to gain new skills and knowledge in a supportive environment. With the right support and accommodations, autistic young adults can excel in many areas, including technical fields.
