NEXT for AUTISM is a non-profit organization that creates and funds innovative programs to improve the lives of people living with autism and their families. Over the past 17 years, NEXT for AUTISM has taken risks with bold ideas and built charter schools, a diagnostic and clinical center, a teacher-training program, after-school programs, employment programs, and recently, a residential program that empowers adults to live within their communities. NEXT for AUTISM also funds schools, programs, and services across the country. While focusing on creating and supporting programs, NEXT for AUTISM's intention is nothing short of disrupting current thought and practices, and reimagining services for individuals and families.
