|Event Date/Time: Apr 26, 2013||End Date/Time: Apr 27, 2013|
We are excited to announce The Help Group’s second annual Advance LA Conference for parents, professionals, and young adults. This year’s conference, INNOVATE, will bring together experts and innovators from diverse fields to join us in exploring the newest thinking on how best to support young people preparing for a successful transition to college, the workforce, and beyond. The conference will focus on the need to devise innovative, practical, and sustainable solutions to answer questions that arise during the transitioning period, a crucial time for young people who face challenges that differ from those confronting many of their peers.
DAY ONE of the conference will bring together a community of professionals and parents who will explore innovative and viable strategies to ease the transition between high school and the next step for young people with ASD, ADHD, learning differences, executive functioning challenges, and social or emotional issues.
DAY TWO will feature the first conference of its kind designed for teens and young adults. The workshop will provide attendees with the opportunity to interact with peers while learning transition skills, sparking passions, and cultivating new relationships.
