With the mission of “Helping improve quality of life of persons on the autism spectrum. Because we all should be supported, be included, and have the opportunity to prosper,” Autism Action Partnership has numerous programs and resources to help families deal with their specific needs.

President and CEO of Autism Action Partnership, Justin Dougherty, joined Mike Hogan for a two-part interview to announce and explain the logistics behind a brand new program they have unveiled this year.

The Prosper Academy is a two-year, post-secondary educational program designed to promote independent living, self-sufficiency, and social skills for young adults with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). In this interview, Justin is able to offer hope to families who are ready to take that next step as well as discuss the expectations of the program as it grows and thrives.
