For many young adults with cerebral palsy and similar disabilities, the ages of 17-28 are a time of excitement, as they are eager to take part in the community, develop new life skills, and find vocational or employment opportunities that allow them to give back to their community and feel valued.

What is Masterclass?

CPA’s Masterclass Programs are an exciting suite of programs designed specifically for young adults. Using an integrated life skills framework that is agile & flexible, we work with you to develop a personalised lifestyle program based on your interests, goals and passions.

It all starts with the building blocks

One person’s goals and aspirations can be quite different from another. That’s why at CPA you become an active contributor and co-designer of the Lifestyle programs that fit you/ your young person’s needs.

How does it work? The building blocks to your individual program are based on four key pillars. Under each pillar is a series of modules that you can choose from, depending on your goals. Briefly, these pillars are:

Developing skills in areas such as time management, travelling independently, money handling, taking instructions and understanding expectations, managing priorities.

Developing the right skills and abilities you need to succeed in the workplace, including building confidence, and improving communication and problem-solving skills.

Helping you achieve your goals and live as independently as possible through learning skills that build independence, self esteem and confidence. Develop skills to take care of yourself – whatever that may look like.

Creating a supportive and inclusive environment that allows you to build strong social connections and friendships.
