      Pushing the Envelope: Girls and Autism?

      A Letter from the CEO: Girls and Autism?

      We’ve wanted to do an article about girls and autism for some time now. There is so much to say: under-diagnosis, different presenting characteristics, treatment options… where to start?

      Pushing the Envelope: Rebuilding Paradise

      A Letter from the CEO: Rebuilding Paradise

      Growing up just outside of Paradise – Paradise, California that is – we always knew that wildfire season was a natural part of the landscape. But even with that knowledge, no one ever expected that the most devastating wildfire in California’s history would end up coming to Paradise.

      Pushing the Envelope: Global Autism Awareness

      Global Autism Awareness: Three Students Got Us Started

      In 2016, three students from the Harvard Graduate School of Education approached us about internships. They were interested in autism in their home countries: China and Pakistan. All three had personal connections to someone with autism and wanted to help them, their families and their communities. They were also aware that in Pakistan and China autism is frequently kept out of view: children with autism are kept at home, only rarely attend schools, and often have not even received an official diagnosis.

      Pushing the Envelope: The Importance of First Person Autism Accounts

      Adults with Autism: The Importance of First Person Accounts

      Many parents of children with autism wonder what will happen when their children grow up – what will their adult lives be like? This is true of all parents, but likely more so for parents of children with autism. And just like neurotypical children, children with autism are each unique and have strengths that help them in life and weaknesses that may sometimes hold them back.
