Supporting People With Disabilities in Massachusetts

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reports that 1 in 88 children in America have an autism diagnosis, and these rates continue to rise. Seven years after high school graduation, one in three young adults with autism have no paid job, college or technical school experience, and another 500,000 children with autism will reach adulthood in the next decade.
