Need for the program
Young adults of 21 years of age living with an ASD/ID have very few services offered once they finish high school even though the Montérégie is ranked first among the administrative regions in terms of prevalence of autism in children. This unfortunate reality puts added pressure on families and marginalizes these young adults. Pleins Rayons reaches out to more than 82 participants. Since its inception, 5 participants have entered the workforce. We provide real opportunities for these young adults to develop a wide variety of professional and social skills.
