Pathways of Extended Learning Programs
Full Time Vocational and Pre-Vocational Programs
The Pathways of Extended Learning is funded by the Ministry of Community and Social Services. The program is a goal focused transitional program that aids in providing support to individuals with Autism Spectrum Disorder to achieve their individualized goals. Individuals are connected with a Community Options Facilitator, who provides 1:1 coaching support to assist the individual to reach their full potential.
Goals could be opportunities in the workplace, volunteering, continuing education, or life skills building to support individuals to successfully participate in their community by optimizing their independence.
Location of services can be at Geneva Centre for Autism, in the communtiy, or in the home and is determined by the individual’s goals.
Current Pathways are but not limited to:
- Computers and Technology
- Office and Administration
- Life Skills
- Child Care

- Animal Services
Our mission with this program is empower adults with ASD in achieving their goals through community involvement and increasing independence. We will do this by:
