About Franklin Capstone

Preparation from the classroom to the community

Our adult program helps pinpoint the areas for growth most necessary to help young adults 18-28 with ASD and other neurodiversities live their most independent, productive, and self-actualized lives. Here’s what you can expect:

  • Research-based assessments
  • Vocational skills and work readiness
  • Low student-to-teacher ratio
  • Curriculum that fits your needs (year-round)
  • Opportunities to practice important life skills

Live life independently, with confidence.

“There is no question in our minds that this program has given our son the self-confidence and self-assurance he needs to move forward in life.”
– Parent
