Avnei Derech La’haim (Milestones for Life)

Avnei Derech sets milestones for life, believing that every person has the right to choose his or her own life path and live as independently as possible. The Avnei Derech motto is “Nothing about us, without us.” Founded with the specific purpose of helping high functioning young adults on the autism spectrum to learn life skills at the critical age, Avnei Derech uses innovative and creative means to: Empower young adults with Asperger’s syndrome to achieve more in their lives by developing a personal transition plan under professional guidance and supervision,, focusing on the young people’s strengths, not their weaknesses. Encourage participants to choose a life path that fits their personality, interests and capabilities. Require participants to learn about broadly accepted social norms and expectations such as personal responsibility and consequences for actions and behaviors. Support individualism while simultaneously fostering sensitivity to other peoples’ needs and behaviors in a group setting and as members of a community.
