Learning Difference Transition Toolkit Published, 2016 Trainings Announced

The College Internship Program (CIP) has launched a groundbreaking new “Toolkit” entitled Autism and Learning Differences: An Active Learning Teaching Toolkit. This comprehensive resource book is a complete skills and competency based curriculum for parents, educators, professionals, and clinicians working with young adults with learning differences such as autism, ADHD, and dyslexia.

“This treasure trove of strategies goes into the nitty gritty of how to support individuals with learning differences ages 16-26, to help them lead independent, fulfilling, and productive lives,” stated Stephen Shore, Ed.D, author and internationally-known autism expert.

The 2016 dates for the “Leisure and Learn” Toolkit trainings have also been finalized. Trainings will be offered on March 21-25, July 18-22 and December 5-9, 2016 at Villa Juanita, Ajijic, Lake Chapala, Mexico. Villa Juanita is a serene, spacious oasis offering panoramic lake views and rolling landscaped gardens.

The 5-day trainings teach essential skills for life, school, work, and independent living, presenting tried-and-true strategies that address difficulties with social skills, cognitive rigidity, self-esteem, and more.

Trainings offer each participant with a learning experience that is active, engaging and has immediate, applicable value while leaving plenty of time for local activities and leisure pursuits. Training fees are $1,395.00 for the 5-day sessions, or $1,295.00 for early registration prior to February 28, 2016. Registration fees include training sessions, workshops, and activities, along with the use of a wide variety of amenities. Airfare and some meals are not included. Group discounts are available.

The “Toolkit” was written by CIP Founder, Dr. Michael McManmon and published by Jessica Kingsley Publishers. CIP is a national post-secondary transition program for young adults with autism and other learning differences. For more information about CIP visit www.cipworldwide.org.
