What is happening at TTI?

A unique focus of finding gifts in individuals with ASD, and linking identified individual strengths into a career path for our participants. Strengths and weaknesses are determined across seven developmental areas. Specific target areas include Social Cognition, Social Communication, Independent Living, Pre-Vocational and Vocational skills.

Project Independence Groups focus on Social Cognition, Independent Living, and Vocational skills. Class topics include but are not limited to personal finance, healthy living, workforce commitment, social skills training, living independently, and self-advocacy.  PI Groups meet weekly and are ever growing and changing based on our client’s needs.  In addition, Tailor Institute PI Groups join together monthly for larger combined social group activities.  In the past this large group has gone bowling, toured a learning facility, and gone to the movies together!

Project Life Experience (PLE) is a unique summer camp for high-functioning young adults with ASD, ages 15 to 18. PLE is an opportunity to experience higher education, employment training, and a more confident outlook on preparing for the workforce. Participants learn about living independently, navigating a college campus, and building community relationships. PLE Camps are held annually during the month of June. This year PLE will take place at UMSL!
