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?'”
