With rising rates of autism and with increasingly effective early intervention, larger numbers of individuals with ASDs are reaching adulthood with the potential to lead independent, productive, and fulfilling lives. Yet, many find themselves stuck – socially isolated, lonely, and struggling academically and vocationally.  We take a strength-based, optimistic view by defining the problems, identifying common strengths, and  focusing on practical, workable and empirically supported, and neuropsychologically informed solutions to those problems.

Thanksgiving Food Drive

We are collecting food donations between Wednesday, November 2nd to Wednesday, November 16th. The two grades with the most boxes of food collected will win a movie party with popcorn. One grade will be chosen from Pre K-2nd grade and one will be chosen from 3rd -5th grade. Please see this flier for details.
