At The Next Step Academy, our motto is "We Are The Change," and since 2005 we have been working to be that change for children with Autism. Autism is an epidemic and it is not going away; in fact, 1 in 56 children born today will be diagnosed with Autism. That diagnosis will send the family into a black hole of choices to be made, and their lives will forever be defined by the day they received the news.
Our mission at The Next Step Academy is to change the lives of these children and their families through our therapeutic education services, which incorporate various therapies designed to meet the unique developmental needs of each child. Additionally, we know over 85% of young adults who live with Autism will struggle to maintain sustainable employment during adulthood. It is our goal to make a lasting impact that will change children's lives for years and years to come, allowing children to reach their full potential and easing their parents' worries of "will my child will have an independent future?".
Please join us at our Changemaker Awards Luncheon as we not only raise money to change the lives of children living with Autism, but honor those who already change our lives with all they do. By attending the 2019 Changemaker Awards Luncheon, you become a Changemaker too!
