Watson Institute: Social, Community Based and Adaptive Life Experiences(SCALE)
The SCALE program is specifically designed for adolescents on the autism spectrum who also
have significant deficits in communication skills and adaptive functioning. While Watson?s STAT program serves teenagers
on the autism spectrum who can benefit from verbally-based, cognitive-behavioral interventions, the SCALE program
is more of a ?hands on? approach to developing social skills and promoting successful functioning in the community. SCALE also includes therapeutic, life skills, community mobility, vocational and recreational components.
