Have Dreams

Founded in 1996 by seven families and two dedicated teachers to address the lack of after-school opportunities for children with autism, Have Dreams provides year-round programs for children, teens and young adults with autism. We aspire to help individuals with autism improve their abilities to learn, function independently and socialize so that they may realize their full potential and develop into contributing members of their communities.

Many young adults with autism are being launched into a society that is ill-prepared and ill-equipped to provide them with meaningful and supportive employment. Have Dreams is opening a Transition Program to provide educational services to assist students with an autism spectrum disorder in making a successful transition from high school to adult employment and independent living.
