Young Adult Transitions to Independent Living Program
Young adults who received special services in high school often graduate at age 18-22, but experience a real loss of socialization, structure, and cognitive stimulation that was part of their school life. Resources to help them integrate into higher education, vocation, or appropriate socialization are scarce and disjointed. Optimum Occupational Therapy can help these young adults and their families with goal setting, resource finding, vocational and avocational exploration, and independent living skills development.
Progressive Goal Attainment Program (PGAP™) was designed to specifically target the psychosocial factors that contribute to disability. Research shows that the presence of these factors influences the degree of disability more than symptoms. PGAP™ targets those factors and their associated behaviors through a life-role reintegration program where return to work is viewed as a primary goal. Research has found PGAP™ to be an effective intervention for four major disability groups (1) pain and musculoskeletal conditions, (2) depression and mental health, (3) cancer survivors, and (4) chronic health conditions. PGAP™ is a 5-10 week, evidence-based program focused on helping clients increase participation in their important and meaningful activities, thereby decreasing disability. Individuals are typically referred for PGAP™ by their physician, worker’s comp or disability insurance case manager. For more information on PGAP™ go to
