Health & Wellness Program
The Wellness Program is a six week course tailored for adolescents and young adults with Autism and will teach methods for effective goal setting across four areas of wellness: Mindfulness, Sleep, Exercise & Nutrition.
This program is designed to meet the needs of individuals at their current level of functioning. All participants will use the tools learned to set their own, realistic goals for each of the four targeted facets of wellness. In addition, a brief daily journal will be used to assist participants with focusing on their daily successes.
Enrollment is limited as we begin each class with 6-10 students. Classes are held on Thursday evenings at Arkansas Families First in North Little Rock, from 5:30 to 6:30 pm. Regular attendance is required, parent participation is encouraged.
The class is intended for individuals who struggle with various aspects of health and wellness.
Teens and young adults in the program often have Aspergers, High Functioning Autism, social anxiety and/or ADHD.
Even though structure, support and encouragement are of emphasis, in order to participate, teens/young adults must be able to manage their behavior and communicate well-enough to participate in small group discussion.
A screening session is held prior to the group to prepare participants and parents, and to assess their fit for the program.
The cost of the screening session $50.00 .
The cost of participation in the 6-week program is $180.00, which is $30.00 per week. We ask that families pay prior to the first class.
