“What would happen if the autism gene was eliminated from the gene pool?
You would have a bunch of people standing around in a cave, chatting and socializing and not getting anything done”
Founded and established by Helen Whelan, Code Blue for Autism develops and provides programs and services for young adults with autism spectrum disorders (ASD).
At Code Blue for Autism we recognise a significant gap in services for school leavers and young adults on the autism spectrum.
Our programs address three (3) critical areas of need:
SOCIAL SKILLS COACHING
Providing real-world social coaching for individuals with ASD that is evidence-based and utilizes peer mentoring to support the development of social skills needed to establish and maintain a healthy long-term friendships.
ACCESS, PARTICIPATION AND INCLUSION
Providing opportunities for young adults on the spectrum to have better access, participation and genuine inclusion in mainstream community events.
Empowering young adults with ASD to self-direct their social choices.
