To provide guidance, education, opportunities and support to families and individuals with autism spectrum disorder.
To guide families and individuals affected by autism and other disabilities to discover their path to inclusion, empowerment, and purpose.
Responding to Autism is dedicated to providing the best practices for treatment of families, children, and adults with Autism Spectrum Disorder. With over 20 years of experience in the field, specializing in autism interventions, parent guidance and professional training, we bring an understanding of the many obstacles encountered, support needed, and joy that can come from teaching or having a child with special needs.
At the Responding to Autism Center, we believe that every human being is born with the drive for continued growth and competence. Somewhere along the line, autism camouflages or covers this drive with obstacles, but it never truly disappears. We know that providing the guidance, education and support, to parents, teachers, and individuals themselves, can lead to a life of inclusion, empowerment, and purpose.
