The president of our board, Christy LaPaglia, has spent her career teaching children with autism spectrum disorder. She has used a saying common to those providing services to people with autism that is summed up by the following; “Play is work, and work is play”. The more organized, predictable, structured and consistent environment promotes learning, growing and changing in a comfortable, safe surrounding.
Our mission is to enrich the lives of persons with autism and other developmental disabilities by providing professionally planned and supervised recreational and leisure opportunities. Not only will our mission create a full range of community options for these individuals, but in doing so inform and educate the general population on how to include these individuals in everyday activities.
We are a 501(c) (3) charitable organization that is committed to providing recreational activities for individuals on the autism spectrum and other disabilities through grants, fundraising events and community support.
In addition, grant applications will be available to organizations and individuals seeking to provide similar opportunities for individuals with autism and developmental disabilities on an annual basis. This is through our grant application found under the tab Applications. Grant applications will be accepted between October 1 and November 10th.
