Just over 30 years ago, I made the hardest decision of my life and moved my eight year old son with autism to what was then Anderson School. I knew he could benefit greatly from immersion in a program devoted to his specific needs. Of course, I’ve remained very active in his life and am thrilled that his progression over the years at Anderson Center has been amazing. The staff is made up of such special people with a unique sense of dedication to the individuals they serve. And, their expertise, dedication and hard work is rewarded every day in the difference they make in the lives of the students and adults.
