NEW Summer Program Classroom Fund...Help us Reach our Goal and Raise $35,000

Each summer since 1984 Autism Services Inc. and the wonderful program staff have been supporting students with autism during the summer. The six week program is structured in a classroom setting and provides each student with 1 to 1 support. Because of the high level of support, students also get to enjoy fun summer activities in the community like swimming, mini golfing, and visiting splash pads.
