A Celebration.
NAVIGATION

For families of children and adults with autism and other special needs, many “firsts” are not guaranteed. Some parents simply can’t imagine their children making the progress necessary to achieve milestones that typically developing people achieve as they grow and move through life. A first dance or first job might seem as possible as a trip to the moon.
 

But they are possibleAnd celebrating them becomes an important part of the journey with autism and other special needs.

Through our “A Lifetime of Firsts” campaign, we hear from individuals, families, and staff who give us their perspective onthe power of firsts.
