Aspire Gala

In celebration of Autism Awareness Month, we are excited to launch “Aspire Always: The 2021 Campaign for Aspire.”

Due to current circumstances, we have made the difficult decision to postpone this year’s Aspire Spring Gala until April 2022. Though we are unable to gather in person, the need for philanthropy is greater than ever. We hope you will join us in supporting this remarkable program and all the work it does to help 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.

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.
