Feedback lesson

“Feedback is the Breakfast of Champions” -Life Skills

You can often hear the quote “Feedback is the breakfast of champions” around the halls of TFL, a quote which is attributed Ken Blanchard.

Over the past few weeks we have been discussing feedback during some of our life skills classes.

The students have been learning how to give feedback in a positive, constructive way as well as how to receive the feedback.

Feedback can be hard to hear and at time even harder to give.

Giving the students the opportunity to learn and try their hand at this in a safe environment is what we do at TFL.

We have also been learning about team work, personal power and where it comes from, and making decisions.

Each one of these topics is used in everyday life experiences.

From working relationships to relationships in the community and at home, each of us can benefit from increasing our skills in these areas to help live a more fulfilling life. –Kristin, TFL Program Director

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.
