Beacon Transitions  Logo beacontransitions.com
Located 15 minutes south of Asheville, North Carolina, Beacon Transitions is an independently owned and operated residential facility that specializes in working with young adults diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder - 1, or "High-Functioning Autism", and other learning disabilities, striving to live a life of complete independence. All of our residents have come to us with emerging skills in all areas of independence but need coaching and guidance from a support system that can help them become fully engaged. Beacon is intended to be the last residential program our clients attend. Through fully assimilating LifeTutors of Asheville into our program, Beacon is able to ensure our clients can transition from assessment and intervention programs like Wilderness Therapy and inpatient hospitalizations, to living entirely independently, often within 12 months. We qualify results by creating a vision for success with each resident upon intake, and helping them determine which path they take to get there, generally either Educational, or Vocational. Our residents all attend either community college, a four year university, or trade school during their time at Beacon. Upon exit, they are either gainfully employed, or pursuing a degree with all of the supports needed to be successful in achieving their goals. Beacon's model works best with the following residents profiles * Primary Diagnosis of ASD1 or "High-Functioning Autism" * ADHD * Non-Verbal Learning Disability * Executive Functioning Deficits * Dyslexia * Depression * Anxiety

Mission Statement
Our Mission is to provide individualized services to our residents as they pursue goals related to personal independence, vocation and education, social and emotional resilience, and family relationships. Our Licensed Clinical Team is trained in Applied Behavioral Analysis and our Case Managers provide individual services to each resident and their families as they transition into independence and achieve their goals. Our Teachers, Direct Care Team, and Trade Skills Specialists work one on one with our residents to help them learn the skills needed to self-actualize and hit targeted milestones of achievement. We walk with young adults from assessment programs like Wilderness Therapy, outpatient services, and occasionally, directly from home, all the way through to complete independence. Beacon Transitions does not use a Behavior Modification Model or practices. We rely heavily on our ability to generate motivation from within the resident, and help them use that energy to fuel the achievement of goals set by themselves, in conjunction with help from their Family, Clinician, and Case Manager.
