Adults on the Autism Spectrum

About the Program

Part of our education program involves training individuals with Autism, helping them to better understand themselves, the business environment and the “neuro-typical” world around them. We know that people on the Autism Spectrum process information differently and have a unique view of the world. We help them to recognize this about themselves while at the same time, help them to more fully understand the world around them. With this knowledge, they are better equipped to work, play and help create more integrated communities both locally and beyond.
