HOPE is learning to adapt to the many changes in our world.  He has learned strategies that help him stay safe and communicate how he feels.  HOPE always tries his best everywhere he goes! We will share HOPE's adventures throughout the 2020-2021 school year.

How can we help?

Thank you to all of the organizations in Martin County that support                                                         HOPE!

Our son Ben was diagnosed with Autism 5 years ago. They call it a “journey” and we can certainly attest to the fact that it is every bit of that and more. We’ll spare you all the intimate details of the ups and downs, the highs and lows because there are so many... One thing we will say, finding a school and a teaching staff that’s a good fit has been more challenging than it should be. We’ve skipped around from school to school, district to district, even packed up and moved from one county to another in order to gain access to the facilities that were better suited to him and would benefit his development the most. With some luck and perhaps the grace of God, we managed to get him into The Hope Center for Autism 3 years ago. It has been a life-changing event for not only Ben but my wife and I as well. Peace of mind is made between then and now is mindboggling. There is so much overlap and coordination between what the school is working on and the private therapy we have him in at home. I can’t say sing their praises loud enough. Every child on the spectrum should have access to a school like this!
