Adult Services

The purpose of Sherwood’s Adult Program is to enable adults with ASD to maintain and strengthen skills in the areas of daily living, language/communication and socialization in order to live, work and function within their communities as independently as possible. The program helps participants learn new skills and build upon previously acquired skills so they can become as independent as possible in their homes and the larger community.
