    I am writing on behalf of my son Paris. He is 18 yrs old and has Autism/Asperger’s. He is presently receiving a Medicaid card and Social Security benefits. I need to know how I can enroll him in your program or one similar to yours and Medicaid pay for it. His Adoption subsidy benefits have been extended until he is 21 yrs old. Could you please give me some wisdom for my son? I am 60 yrs old and would like to know that I did everything in my power while he has me, to make sure he has a productive life after I’m gone.

    Thank you very much. I will be awaiting to hear from you.

    Hi! I’m looking for a program for my adult nephew(39) who has been diagnosed as having developmental disabilities (mild autism and retardation). He is in need of meaningful work and activities…he is highly functional in life skills. It appears the Autism Transitions program may be something that may work for him. Can you help me find a program for him or point me to resources that will help him start to lead a full and productive life?
