Our Autism program was established in 1984 with one Autism specialist who provided expertise throughout our service area. Today, we are proud to be home to nine Autism specialists, a number of specialized classrooms and a team of support staff who change the lives of children and families. Over the years, the team has provided direct, consultative and coaching support for children, families as well as special and general education teachers and staff.
