Join us on Thursday, April 2, 2020 as we celebrate the 20th anniversary of the Aspire Spring Gala. Aspire helps children, teens and adults with high cognitive autism spectrum disorder and related profiles develop the skills necessary to be successful in their communities and workplaces.

Throughout the 19-year history of the Aspire Spring Gala, the generosity of our friends and sponsors has helped us raise more than $19 million to support the Aspire program. This year’s gala promises to be an impactful one, as we celebrate 20 years of this inspiring event and the opportunities it has made possible for young people on the autism spectrum.

About Aspire

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 15 area school districts and conducts trainings and workshops serving 700 education and private sector professionals each year.

Aspire’s programming is designed to help participants develop social competency skills so that they can succeed at home, school, work and in community settings. Many Aspire participants have challenges with stress management, anxiety, social communication, attention, organization, or demonstrate sensory differences. Aspire’s therapeutic curriculum focuses on teaching important life skills via the “3S” model – to improve every individual’s self-awareness, social competence 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 while feeling accepted and valued for their unique qualities.

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.
