Providing quality programs for individuals with autism spectrum disorder throughout Northern New England.
The mission of the Greengard Center for Autism located in Portsmouth, New Hampshire, is to create quality programs for adults and adolescents with autism spectrum disorder. The Greengard Center seeks to provide unique lifelong opportunities for individuals with autism to have a productive quality of life through ongoing education, meaningful work, and access to recreation, social and community acceptance and participation.
The Day Program is designed to provide participants the opportunity to maintain and expand existing strengths, develop new skills, and offer meaningful experiences within a program that is individually tailored to each participant’s preferences, interests, and abilities.Read More

This unique event during Autism Awareness Month is a wonderful evening of music, hors d’oeuvres, drinks, and a multi-sensory exploration of artwork by local artists, with pieces illuminated and enhanced by complementary scents, tastes and sounds. These artworks will be enjoyed through-out the evening and available, along with covetable gifts and donations, via silent auction at the end of the event. Unable to attend?

A Child With Autism…
…Grows Up To Be An Adult With Autism
“Every parent who has a child with autism of greater need, worries about what will happen when that child becomes an adult with autism. We worry about how we will manage as we get older and we worry about who will be there when we are gone. The Greengard Center is being created to address these needs and provide programs for adults with autism that can give families a sense of security. We are creating a program and home that answers the question, ‘what’s next?'”
