Highlights from the Aspire Spring Gala 2023

The Aspire program at Mass General for Children helps children, teens and adults with high cognitive autism spectrum disorder develop the skills necessary to be successful in their communities and workplaces.

About Aspire

Aspire specializes in helping children, teens and adults on the autism spectrum achieve success. Aspire’s unique programming is uniquely designed to help participants with Asperger profiles develop social competency skills so 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 — 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 strengths and unique qualities.

As an organization dedicated to serving individuals with autism, Aspire is steadfast in promoting neurodiversity and inclusion across settings. Aspire provides an array of consultation and support services designed to educate and broaden the understanding of the unique strengths and needs of this population. Through parent and caregiver programs, school-based consultation, professional development services and corporate neurodiversity trainings, Aspire supports their participants and the ASD community, where they live, learn and work.
