"... the most important considerations in devising educational programs for children with autistic spectrum disorders have to do with recognition of the autism spectrum as a whole, with the concomitant implications for social, communicative, and behavioral development and learning, and with the understanding of the strengths and weaknesses of the individual child across areas of development."
—Educating Children with Autism2001


Extraordinary Speaker Events

Our monthly speaker events inform our community about evidence-based educational practices for students on the autism spectrum; a child’s legal rights to a fair and appropriate public education (FAPE); and other local resources available that address the core challenges of autism. These events also provide parents with a space to share their experiences and stories with each other.

Extraordinary Minds in Montgomery County Public Schools (MCPS)

Our annual “Extraordinary Minds in MCPS Forum informs parents about public school placements and services for students across the autism spectrum in Montgomery County, Maryland, a county that supports roughly 2,300 autistic students.
