Helping Children, Teens and Adults on the Autism Spectrum Achieve Success
Aspire is a highly successful, therapeutically-based program that serves children, teens and adults with high cognitive autism spectrum disorder and related social profiles. Additionally, the program supports more than 22 area school districts and conducts workshops serving 750 education and private sector professionals each year.
Aspire works to develop participants’ social skills and help them develop greater independence. Individuals on the autism spectrum often have difficulties in the areas of social skills, communication, academic achievement, sensory integration and behavioral regulation. The Aspire approach teaches social and life skills using the 3 S’s approach: Social competency, self-awareness, and stress management. This approach not only allows staff to provide individualized coaching and support “in the moment,” but also ensures an ideal environment for participants to learn new skills.
At Aspire, we work to help individuals on the autism spectrum achieve their full potential in all aspects of their lives and are committed to serving participants regardless of their economic background.
Aspire offers a fun-filled seven-week day camp for children entering first grade through age 15. Designed to model the traditional “summer camp experience,” each camp day consists of recreational activities as well as therapeutic interventions.
