Adults on the Autism Spectrum
For more than a decade, we have taught and employed individuals on the Autism Spectrum. During that time, we have developed a deep understanding and appreciation of those diagnosed. In fact, we feel those on the Autism Spectrum are helping our world expand in many amazing ways.
Our programs help guide those on the Spectrum to discover who they really are as well (including their unique talents, abilities and purpose). In addition, we help them to better understand the world around them (particularly the business world), so that they gain clarity about their future are better equipped to lead their lives on purpose.
We also provide opportunities to connect with others on the Spectrum to create lasting friendships and a strengthened autism community.
Autism Shifts is a Direct Provider for Vocational Rehabilitation and a Gardiner Scholarship Provider.
Parents / Caregivers
Parents play a Key Role in helping their child live in a place hope and positive expectation where all things are possible.
However, before we as parents can help our child, we must gain a new perspective and understanding of Autism and have the tools/processes we need to be able to advocate for ourselves and our child.
We serve as your guide and support you as you connect, grow and advocate.
