What is LifeNet?
LifeNet is a private pay, independent living support program for adults with Asperger’s or similar autism spectrum profiles.
LifeNet is designed to address questions like:
“Who will help me get the support I need as I transition to living on my own?” or “Who can help me continue to live independently as I grow older?” – Adult
“Who can help my adult family member manage their needs and live more independently of us over time?” – Parent
LifeNet offers peace of mind that an adult on the spectrum will be supported as they navigate adulthood by a devoted team who understands them, backed by two trusted non-profit organizations: Autism Services and Resources Connecticut (ASRC) and the Asperger/Autism Network (AANE).
How Do You Approach Supporting Adults?
The LifeNet team uses a strengths-based, adult-centered philosophy in delivering our service. We communicate primarily with the LifeNet adult, meeting them where they are and going at their pace. We center on their own priorities and interests, at any point in time and throughout the lifecourse, serving as a consistent source for accompaniment along the way. Above all, we support and honor the adult’s self-determination: their right and role as their own decision-makers and self-advocates.
If you or your adult family member may be interested in LifeNet, please click here for additional information about eligibility criteria, service levels, and costs – and to allow us to follow up with you based on your availability.
