Raising a child with autism can be quite isolating and depressing. The monthly support and discussion group has helped me to find friends who understand what I am going through... Just knowing that there are others going through similar situations can help me to relax, laugh a little and continue persevering for my son.Karen

Many Spectrum Services families, and our extended family of community supporters and businesses, understand the importance of sustaining the life-changing work we do, and with good reason; a student they know and love has benefitted from Spectrum Services.

From Our Experts: Give Yourself the Gift of Presence

By Laurie Hopkins, MS OTR/L
“Yesterday is history, tomorrow is a mystery, and today is a gift; that’s why they call it the present.”
