Why choose the Next Steps After Highschool Program?

Students often experience difficulties associated with career exploration and supports during their High-School years, and having a diagnosed Learning Disability while searching for a career that eliminates barriers can be difficult. The Next Steps program is a highly interactive course designed to assist in the transition to either a Post-Secondary Education or a Career; all while developing the skills to navigate life with a Learning Disability. The aim of this program is to ensure students are able to thrive once they’ve graduated high school and creating opportunities for students to feel excited and motivated to approach this new chapter.

Program Description

Designed specifically for students with Learning Disabilities and their supports, Next Steps  is a program intended to assist students in their transition from high-school to their desired goals for the future. Students will have the opportunity to set career-specific goals, establish self-advocacy techniques, and gain the skills and resources needed to successfully transition from high-school. Rather than a lecture based program, Next Steps is workshop based that will combine community partnerships and individuals with lived experience of LD/ADHD that are leading successful careers to encourage and uplift students.

Parents, guardians and supports are offered a separate weekly session for understanding the resources available and how to best support the student through this period of change. Upon completion of the 10 weeks, students should feel more confident in their decisions for their future and how to reach the goals they set out for themselves.
