Since 1987, Pathways to Independence (PTI) has been helping adults with complex learning disabilities, specific forms of autism and associated disorders that impact their social abilities. Our innovative programming supports clients as they discover new levels of confidence while connecting with friends and their communities. We help our participants set goals and challenge themselves to reach for their full potential.
The Social Focus program is our most individualized learning experience because we begin with the client’s specific goals and then build instructional strategies around them.
The Social Growth program gives our clients the opportunity to see their community in exciting new ways while building their network of social supports. A monthly calendar of nearly 20 opportunities and adventures each month awaits.
