For the entire month of April, we celebrate autism awareness, acceptance and understanding by sharing what Autism means to us. Hear from our staff, students, and families about the many ways in which autism has touched our lives and made us into the people we are today.
Check out the wonderful videos below from our "Autism Is..." campaign to hear some of the incredible stories of our students, staff and families.

Hear about the incredible organizations hiring our students on the autism spectrum and our extensive vocational program. Kevin Gersh issues a challenge to other businesses to open their doors to our students. What will you do to empower individuals on the spectrum this year?

We spoke to some of our very own Gersh Team members about their experiences growing up with children and siblings on the autism spectrum. Enjoy the video and learn how loving an individual on the autism spectrum shaped the lives of our own staff.
