Narrative

Thrive's Extended Day program at Algonquin Regional High School addresses a gap in services for young adults living with autism spectrum disorder or other intellectual and developmental challenges, and supports these young adults and their families as they transition into the adult world. The young men and women participating in this program learn and use social skills, make friends and bolster their self-esteem. At the same time, their parents or caregivers receive respite, allowing them to work, do errands, attend to the needs of their other children, or simply get some much-needed rest. There is no comparable program of its kind in the greater MetroWest communities that we serve. The program is run Tuesday – Thursday from 2:00 PM – 5:00 PM.  Programs and activities include; art therapy, ZUMBA, yoga, cooking, computer time, community trips, outdoor / indoor sport activities, and much more.
