Preparing youth with autism spectrum and related disorders ages 12 and older for life after high school requires new thinking and new actions from everyone so that options for our youth lead to continued personal growth and increased quality of life.Becoming Remarkably Able is a system of ongoing assessments with action steps. The model is designed for family members and professionals to guide an individual through an exploration process to identify strengths and gifts that supports emotional needs and promotes growth. The activities are based upon real-life experiences from the author's research, to include her son Trent, who has autism. Because every one has strengths, this resource is helpful for individuals who are high functioning as well as for those who have more significant disabilities. With a focus on increased capability or independence, Becoming Remarkably Able helps establish goals and pursue paths for students during transition in the quest for a true “quality of life.”
