Launch program

Under Construction....The North Little Rock Launch Project

The Autism Launch Project is series of programming for children, teens, and young adults to the develop the skills needed to launch into independent, meaningful and product adulthoods.

The program stems from a 2013 study showing that "Young adults with autism are more likely to live with their parents and least likely to live independently after leaving high school as compared to those with other types of disabilities. Researchers reported only about 17 percent of young adults on the Autism Spectrum ages 21 to 25 have ever lived independently, compared to nearly 34 percent of their peers with intellectual disabilities. Read more here.

The Launch Program's mission is elevate this 17%! We believe, with the right support, young adults with autism can launch into adult at much higher rates than that! The Launch program is dedicated to teaching the skills needed to become independent. Below are some of the events and programming we've developed to help launch our friends on the Autism Spectrum.
