The adulting program at The Conative Group focuses on helping young adults who are having difficulty moving forward in life. Dr. Harrison is a pioneer in the field of Adulting, especially for those with Asperger’s-type autism or ADHD, and the Adulting Program was initially designed to serve the needs of these individuals and their families. Since its inception, however, many young adults who struggle with other issues have benefitted from the structure and support of our Adulting program, too.
Young adults who have trouble becoming active with either school or work often have fallen into a series of bad habits which keep them stuck. Parents can become frustrated and confused about what to do, especially when nothing they do or say seems to motivate their young adult. At The Conative Group, we know that learning and using necessary core habits for adulthood often requires a systematic plan of action. The Adulting Program provides a structured series of steps including a daily “check-in” feature, executive function coaching, individual, group and family therapy, parent consultation, and regular objective assessment to assist young adults successfully transition to adulthood.
