The Arrival of Autism
Long before “Autism” was coined by child psychologist Dr. Leo Kanner nearly 70 years ago, our typical society included these often atypical people. Many people spent decades not knowing they were on the Autism spectrum. Today, the term Autism is heard more frequently, yet the number of people diagnosed with Autism continues to grow. Autism is a population, and Autistic Services, Inc. is one of many communities that acts as a home, school and haven for people on the Spectrum.
A Cultural Spectrum
From humble beginnings over 25 years ago, which began with a 12 month education program, we have grown into an agency with three locations offering a plethora of educational and quality of life programs that include Adult Day Programs, Residential Programs, Supported Employment, Family Support Services (including Medical Services Coordination, Respite, In-Home Clinical Support Program, Therapeutic Recreation for Autistic Children (TRAC) and an After School and Vacation Camp Program) and related Clinical Support. Children who are students at our school, once graduated, make a seamless transition to our adult programs. Here they continue to learn such basics as self-care, employment and community integration, which is the ultimate goal of our organization.
Creating a Culture
The programs at Autistic Services are not designed to cure Autism, but to help people with Autism learn to function in a society that was never tailored to them.We approach Autism as a culture that has much to contribute. With this at the heart of our philosophy, we are a platform for our artists, writers, poets and musical performers to express themselves to their communities. ArtsWork is our agency's signature program. Through ArtsWork, the universal language of art and music is used to create a bridge between people with Autism and the community at large. Theatrical presentations, musical presentations, musical performances and art exhibitions allow our population to engage with the public, facilitating communication and socialization while increasing awareness.
Creating an Environment.
Our environment is optimized for sensory integration, and tailored to maximize theirability to learn and function. Each of our three locations accomodate a Multi-Sensory Environment where students can Louis Vuitton Replica Handbags Louis Vuitton Replica Handbags Louis Vuitton Replica Handbags Louis Vuitton Replica Handbags decompress while still receiving an influx of controlled sensory stimuli.
