WELCOME TO ASAP CARES|
Living with autism presents many challenges that most of us never
even have to consider. Imagine how you would feel if you couldn’t tell someone
that you’re not feeling well or that you don’t like what has been presented to
you for dinner. How would you feel if your bath water was too cold, and you had
no way to tell anyone except by “acting out”? The negative behaviors then
become your way to communicate. Autism Support and Programs (ASAP) offers
solutions to individuals who have CAP funding (Community Alternative Programs).

ASAP TRULY CARES...
It is essential to give individuals a safe environment where they
can learn to communicate their wants and needs and maximize their own individual
potential. To watch someone learn to effectively communicate their needs and
desires and engage in activities that promote enviable lives, and most
importantly to see someone emerge from the holds of autism is an exciting and
most fulfilling adventure.
Also, our heartfelt thanks go out to the Landfall Foundation
for their generous support of our Sunrise Program.
