Bridges to Success is a collaborative program delivered by Autism Nova Scotia support staff, the Bridges to Success Coordinator, and Community Inclusion Facilitators. It is a program for autistic youth and young adults who require 1:1 support from a respite worker or caregiver who will attend sessions with them.

Each Bridges to Success group hosts up to four members and their support people and run 14 weeks per term. The program meets twice a week for one-and-a-half to two hours at a time. Each week will offer different activities, as well as opportunities for socialization, skill building and getting involved in the community.

This program will help participants work towards their goals by creating person-driven plans, and supporting each participant in their transition into meaningful community-based social and recreational activities.
