Before Greater Expectations moved to the Independent Living Resource Center, we were located within Autism Avenue Gift Shoppe, which served as a learning platform for real-world employment. We’re so grateful for the years our program spent there. So many memories and kind comments from amazing participants and parents alike!

When Audrey and Andi explained to me about monotone voices and people’s perspective while using a dance metaphor I honestly felt […]

I gained better communication skills and the experience to convey my message more effectively than before I started the program. I learned better organization and reasoning skills that have benefited my career and home life. The most challenging part was adjusting to a different style of work than I was used to. It is somewhat […]
