Dragonfly Forest, a non-profit camp for kids, in West Chester, Pa., is beginning a new "Explorer" program this summer to help kids with autism learn the following skills essential for transitioning to adulthood: Clear communication in a team environment; Independent use of lists and schedules; Sustainable exercise routines; Cooking; Laundry; Basic cleaning; Identifying and responding to directions in different formats (direct verbal, implied verbal, direct written, and implied written); and job interviewing.
In a world where individuals with autism are often discriminated against by employers, Benji's mother is looking to help Benji build up an arsenal of skills that will make him a more productive adult. Benji can't wait to get out into the world and start working!
