Adults Night OutCost: $50
Now accepting applications for the March 2014 session.
This program meets one Friday or Saturday night each month* for three hours and is designed for adults (18 years old and up) with autism to be involved in fun activities in a structured environment while interacting with others their own age. Adults are organized into groups based on their interests and skill level and provided with 1:1 - 1:3 support. Examples of activities include games, movies, music and cooking. Space is limited.
At this time, individuals who exhibit severe behavioral problems such as aggression cannot be accommodated at Adults Night Out.
Due to the educational component of the Kinney Center, at various times, students enrolled in the autism minor or certificate program will be observing Kinney Center programs as part of their coursework.
In the case of inclement weather where a program must be canceled, sessions will not be made up due to time and space restrictions.
Please note that this program can accommodate only a limited number of participants. Upon acceptance, the program fee of $50.00 per adult must be paid two weeks prior to the program date to guarantee placement. The Kinney Center offers a "sibling discount" to families with more than one adult enrolled in the same program.
*Adults Night Out sessions are scheduled based on Saint Joseph's University's academic calendar. The Kinney Center makes an effort to have 9 sessions per year.
*On the evening of the Adults Night Out program, participants should arrive promptly at 5:00 PM. Please visit the Directions page for directions to the drop-off/pick-up parking lot.
