Laurie Rich, Esq., Foundation Director of Spectrum Services Foundation, discusses the autism spectrum and the schools in the Hudson Valley that provide education and special help for children on the spectrum. The autism spectrum spans disorders ranging from profoundly autistic who often cannot speak to Asperger’s Syndrome, with those in the latter category often particularly skilled in science and the arts. The schools involved encompass 14 counties in 55 school districts, with students referred by local public schools. Students enrolled in the program work on social skills to assure that their talents can easily be absorbed into the work force. Early intervention is more likely to promote greater improvement.
