The “I Can” Initiative offers 6 week programs designed to increase social interaction, learning and development for children and young adults as well as their siblings.
Three hundred and sixty five FREE community opportunities - Classes, workshops, that include both education and sports programs etc. Just think about it. There are 365 days in a year, that's how many amazing opportunities we as an organization have dedicated to the children and adults in our communities. You see, it takes a grassroots like Project Autism to stand up against what is deemed the norm, especially in the charity world. When we first started people told us it was impossible. No one can do what you want to do without money. We are powered from within, born out of need, collectively trying to build stronger roots so that our very own children /adults can grow and flourish in our world. We see the bigger picture. No one tells us what we need. We know. We see. We feel. We hear. We work. We create. We celebrate. - Judith, Anne & Patrick #Communitymatters #communityhelpingcommunity
What Is Grassroots?
A grassroots initiative implies that the creation of the movement and the group supporting it are natural and spontaneous, highlighting the differences between this and a movement that is orchestrated by traditional power structures.
Autism is a complex developmental disorder that typically affects a person’s ability to communicate, form relationships, and respond appropriately to the environment. Autism results from a neurological disorder that impedes normal brain development in the areas of social interaction and communication skills.
