Our Frequently Asked Questions
  • What is Highpoint?
    Highpoint was developed to meet the needs of students with developmental disabilities who are transitioning into adulthood. This transitional support service has been specifically tailored for today’s emerging adults. Highpoint was created by a combination of experts in the field of developmental disabilities, including a Clinical Psychologist, Educational Psychologist as well as a Behavioral specialist who collectively have a combined 40 years of experience specializing in higher education, socialization and vocational exploration. Highpoint is an interactive and comprehensive support program specifically designed to assist adults within the neurodiverse community. Highpoint’s goal is to come along side its participants to help individuals discover goals and support them in the process of achieving their goals. Highpoint guides the development of skills that are needed to discover your passion after high school.
  • Why was Highpoint developed?
    Highpoint was developed out of the adaptive response to an increasingly digital integration of employment, higher education, and social connectedness. Success today is defined by the management of digital resources, utilization and leverage to stay competitive in a fast-paced interconnected society. The development of functional skill based digital competence is our goal. Young adults are tasked with managing their lives in a digital space. Increasingly employment, higher education, and social success are dependent on the skills and accessibility of online resources and support. As what is “online” and “real world” is increasingly blended, Highpoint does not take an either-or approach rather, we view successful transition requiring being able to blend skills in both digital and real-world environments. Highpoint integrates the essentials of successful transition in a format that is accessible and convenient to help young adults stay competitive, have a broader reach, and prepare them for their local community. Highpoint's mission is to have greater impact, greater connection, and ultimately greater success with those we serve in both digital and real-world applications.
  • Does Highpoint accept participants who are in the Self-Determination Program?
    (Participant-directed, Self-directed Consumers) Yes, Highpoint accepts individuals in the Self-Determination Program and is a perfect core service addition to any spending plan.
  • Who is Highpoint for?
    Highpoint is for emerging neurodiverse young adults seeking support after high school with purpose and planning. Those interested in Highpoint’s college and employment services usually hold a high school diploma. Highpoint participants are either enrolled or seeking enrollment in any post-secondary educational setting such as trade school, community college, four-year university, or certificate program. The Highpoint team can assist in the enrollment process.
  • How does Highpoint work?
    Highpoint begins with a personalized orientation and assessment to target and identify each members unique strengths and areas of growth and opportunity. From this initial orientation each member will, with the participation of their assigned HPC (Highpoint Coach), develop a personalized transition plan. The plan is based on known skills that predict success including self-determination skills, adaptive functioning, and executive functioning. Personalized goals include social and relational goals, along with discovering future employment opportunities that match interests and learning styles. Each member will map out their destination, and we will be there to guide that chosen journey. Following the orientation, each student is assigned a mentor/coach who is experienced in educational support, employment, and socialization to build the tools necessary for success. At Highpoint, we believe success is not an accident-- it is a focused repeatable process each member is guided personally to plan and discover. It is a support system with the goal of developing greater degrees of independence.
  • Who is the Highpoint clinical team?
    Highpoint has an interdisciplinary team that consists of counselors, educational psychologist/neuropsychologist, clinical psychologist, and behavioral and instructional specialist. This unique blend of academic and professional experience allows Highpoint to create opportunities for optimal success emerging into adulthood.
