ABOUT HUMANEX ACADEMY

Humanex Academy is a private, accredited, alternative middle and high school that offers a structured, supportive academic environment for students with unique academic, social, emotional, and behavioral needs since 1983. We work with students who present with a variety of learning disabilities, who are Twice Exceptional (2e), on the Autism Spectrum, or struggling in traditional academic setting because of a mood or anxiety disorder. Our program has three core elements: an individualized academic curriculum, counseling support, and an empathetic and solution-focused approach to growth and development. We are the only program of this kind in the Denver metro area. At Humanex Academy we strive to bring the Human Experience back to education for each and every student we serve.

Presentation: On the Fence of Independent Living @ Humanex Academy
Oct 3 @ 5:30 pm – 8:30 pm

When “high functioning” may, or may not, mean independence for your child
How do we plan if we aren’t sure our child will be employed and living independently?
Does your child struggle with executive functioning, sensory, attention, memory, mood issues or age appropriate independence skills? Do we need a “Plan B” or a Special Needs Trust? Learn coordinated financial and legal strategies that provide a desired outcome for your child and family. Explore potential eligibilities for public benefits, resources and services that benefit your high functioning child. Discover how to create a proactive plan!
