Autism Symposium Presentation

Our director, Jason Grygla, presented at the 5th annual Autism Symposium held earlier this week in Park City, UT.

The Autism Symposium was created to bring more awareness to the increasing need of services for those with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD), and to facilitate conversations on the most pertinent topics regarding these students and their families.

This symposium highlights top notch treatment approaches and provides insights that continue to aid professionals that serve this population.

Jason’s presentation on “Trends and Initiatives in Transitioning Higher Functioning Autists Into Financial Self-Reliance and Independence” was well received by those in attendance.

River Rafting with Our Techie For Life Students

In August, we took a trip to the Colorado River around Moab on a river rafting trip.

During the day, we would row down the river and then return to camp by evening.

Jason brought his wife and girls over, so it was like having extended family over.

We spent our time on the river on “duckies” and rafts moving lazily along interspersed with light rapids.

Some of us decided to swim along as well.

After a few hours on the river, we would return to camp where we would have dinner and hang around the campsite.

This was a nice, intimate experience where we got to know each other better.

Overall, everyone had fun on the trip, and we may do it again in the future. — Dylan, TFL student
