Life Skills Center for Teens with ASD Opens in Burton – The Good News [VIDEO]
It's in conjunction with the Autism Support and Resource Center (ASRC).
Garrett's Place will teach people on the spectrum the essential life skills that they need to know to lead a semi-independent life. It opens this Saturday.
The life skills center has been completely funded by the Driving Fore Autism golf outing that takes place every summer at the Jewel of Grand Blanc. All the money raised stays local, and has contributed to the development of this center.
As parents of a child with autism, we can't describe how helpful this is. Regardless of where your child falls on the spectrum, I think we all wonder whether or not they'll be able to lead independent lives. This is a huge help.
