Adults With Autism Requiring Extra Support (AWARES) is for adults with autism, who are registered with UCF CARD, and require additional support in the community.
AWARES is a 16 week program that meets every other week, for a total of 8 sessions per semester. Locations and activities vary. This program requires a caregiver/guardian, to participate with UCF CARD constituents, to attend the activities (supports are there for support only and do not participate in activity if one. ie.bowling,painting, etc). This program is for individuals registered with UCF CARD 18+ years of age. Each event is supported by facilitators.
Due to COVID there will be changes in the program for Fall 2020. This program will focus on Interoception and use Kelly Mahler MS OTR/L curriculum.
