Firefly Autism has changed the lives of thousands of children and families-supporting and transforming the lives of family members and friends-through our center programs, home programs, consultations, trainings, and therapies. With the creation of Firefly Autism, parents have the option to access learning programs, therapy, respite, and consultation services in one place. Not surprisingly, this holistic environment where learning and treatments are well coordinated improves the children’s learning rates. For example, children in our Foundations of Learning program are learning five times as fast compared to their learning rates on arrival with us. Moreover, reduced stress and travel time for both parents and children has a consequent positive impact on family life. Through our school-aged program, we have worked with over 17 school districts and in four countries to provide consultation and support to teachers and educational staff and to specific autism programs. Children in our House programs have come from 11 school districts and three states.
At Firefly Autism, we believe in treating the whole person; in school, home, and in the community. We provide wraparound services for the family, wherever the need arises. Our Home-Based Services team works with the entire circle of supports to help enhance leering opportunities in every aspect of the lives of the individuals we serve. We offer a variety of services to meet the dynamic needs of the autism community, which we know is an incredibly diverse group. What all our services have in common is their focus on transforming the lives of children with autism. By partnering with families, we are able to create life-long relationships through our thoughtful, innovative and empirical learning programs.
