“When my son was diagnosed with autism, we were scared and didn’t know where to turn. Thankfully, JSSA came to our rescue. The support groups and therapy sessions helped our son flourish in school, despite his differences.”
“You were there, listened to our needs and guided us through the most difficult time in our lives. My wife and I only wish that other families in similar circumstances are able to have you by their side. We give you our deepest thanks and gratitude.”
“I am deaf, which made it hard for me to find an employer who was willing to accommodate my needs. JSSA’s Specialized Employment coach supported me and helped me find a great job in a field I love.”
“I joined the Going Places! program eight years ago. We go bowling, play mini golf, board games and just have fun with people like me. Having autism made it hard for me to make friends. Going Places! helps me to make friends and learn how to get along with others.”
