What is Thrive With Autism?

Thrive With Autism is a 501c 3 tax-exempt nonprofit organization formed to help children with autism gain access to individualized high-quality education, therapies, and other services needed to help them reach their full potential. Our two main goals are to create a tuition-free, charter school accessible to all children with autism, regardless of financial standing, and to provide a one-stop shop approach that allows access to additional services needed for children with autism.
