Of Course I Can Do That By Myself!

ILS-icanARM and The Orange County Asperger’s Support Group (OCASG) partnered again over the weekend for another independent living skills workshop for young adults — Making Sense of Dollar$ & Cents on July 11, 2015. Let’s just say it was a capital success!

The students learned strategies for paying rent, grocery and phone/utilities bills — and how job performance is related to pay. And lots more.

ILS-finance071115-5A huge thank you to author and adviser Chella Diaz [http://www.linkedin.com/in/chelladiaz; follow her on Twitter–MoneyMap 101@ChellaDiazMoney] and all the wonderful students!

Hats off to Kimberly Orliczky and Michael Wright of Trumpet Behavioral Health www.tbh.com who generously donated the space, the coffee and the doughnuts! Much appreciated!

On Monday, July 20, 2015, the OCASG Newport Beach Support Group Meeting will talk more about these workshops. We’ll have a panel featuring Chef Patrick DiGiacomo and boxing coach/fitness expert Juan Gonzalez to talk about the importance of good eating habits and exercise. And we’ll have sign-ups for upcoming life skills workshops, as well. Don’t miss it! RSVPs are required. Click here.
