360 Health & Wellness®

This groundbreaking curriculum establishes a continuous healthcare spectrum within a supportive community framework.

Examining the healthcare gap.

To help close the healthcare gap for adults with autism and/or intellectual/developmental disabilities (A/I/DD), First Place developed the 360 Health & Wellness® curriculum with three comprehensive courses developed to support adults with A/I/DD—along with families and healthcare professionals—in the successful transition from adolescent to adult healthcare.

Participants learn:

  • The importance of routine, preventive care.
  • How to prepare for routine healthcare exams.
  • What to expect when they visit their physician.
  • Optimum communication with their physician.
  • The importance of being their own healthcare advocates.
  • Skills to manage their healthcare records and medication(s).
“We must ensure that autistic adults and those with other neurodiversities are empowered and equipped to enjoy a lifespan of quality, uninterrupted healthcare.”
Maureen Casey, Director, The Daniel Jordan Fiddle Foundation Center for Public Policy and Colonel Harland Sanders Center for Applied Research
