The Launch Program

  • The Launch Program, an initiative of The Sinneave Family Foundation and delivered in partnership with AutismBC, was developed to help families prepare for and respond to key life transitions.  It is focused on discovering personal strengths and areas for growth based on an individual’s interests, abilities and needs. It offers training and navigation support to families to help create Individualized Transition Plans by answering three questions:

    1. Where are we now? (Assessment)
    2. Where do we want to go? (Goal Setting)
    3. How do we get there? (Implementation)
