FOPI - Focus on Personal Independence
FOCUS Initiative has created a program especially for adults with Asperger’s, PDD-NOS, ADHD, and other social-cognitive deficits called Focus On Personal Independence (FOPI). FOPI’s goal is to assist its clients towards a more independent life with personalized programs that fit each individual’s particular challenges. In the FOPI program each client is given the one-on-one life and social mentoring and training that can bring them closer towards the goal of the fuller and more independent life that they deserve. Even if full independence is not possible, every client has the opportunity towards developing a fuller and richer life as they grow in their overall life and social understanding, while also often providing a significant reduction in the amount of care-giving required by their family members and an improved quality-of-life for all involved.
