Avondale House is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit United Way agency that recognizes each individual with autism has unique strengths and needs and utilizes various training strategies to support their different learning styles. We specialize in working with children and adults who are profoundly impacted by this disorder, and implement effective plans to promote positive changes in those we serve. Our day school program, adult day program and residential group home services are designed to nurture individuals on the spectrum throughout the course of their lives, while helping them reach their fullest potential.
