Support inclusion for people with special needs!
In light of George Floyd’s death and the resulting protests worldwide, we stand by those now addressing systemic racism in our country. Inclusion is an important value for us as a company. We serve individuals who are judged, excluded, and sometimes neglected or mistreated by society. We are passionate about the value of our clients’ and our staff as humans. We stand by the black community and their allies who are seeking humane treatment and a shake up of societal norms in this time. We are sorry that you have to ask to be treated with respect, dignity, and humanity. We will treat you with such, and we will listen as you tell us how to do that in the way that is best for you. We will also incorporate more teaching opportunities with the children that we serve, to help them grow up to treat other humans the right way.

We're honoring Autism Acceptance Day a little differently this year! We think it's a day to be grateful for the gifts we have in our lives.
Thank you to the children with autism who teach us every single day. We learn so much from you! You brighten our lives and are the highlight of our days.
Thank you for the families who work so hard and have so many practitioners involved in their personal lives. We recognize the many ways you show love to your children.
Thank you to technology! Thanks to emails, phone calls, video chatting, sharing notes/materials electronically, and all things Google, we have been able to remain connected while we're all separated physically!
Thank you to the funders, mostly insurance companies, who quickly responded to the pandemic to allow flexibility in services, particularly telehealth. This was a great time for us all to recognize our priorities, and we're so happy to have worked with funders who put families' needs first.
To our local autism community: we're not forgetting about you while you're at home. Today is your day!
We hope you have the opportunity to take time to give thanks on Autism Acceptance Day!
We know everyone is feeling the impact of COVID19 and everyone is feeling it differently. We want you to know that we are continuing to offer our services during this time. We know that the special needs of the children we serve do not go away in this pandemic. Instead, the families we work with need support more than ever while they're isolated and out of their routine. We continue to offer in-home services, and if those are not an option for families, we are offering telehealth services. We are not forgetting about any of you!
If you have a child with autism or other special needs and you're struggling right now, please reach out to us!
