“Urban Autism Solutions is the first autism-based group that my brother has willingly and enthusiastically attended.  Everyone we’ve met at UAS has been inclusive, gracious, knowledgeable and kind.  Matt has attended cooking classes, baseball games, and movie nights and always comes home from these events stating how much fun he had.  These events have become the cornerstone of his social life. For the first time in his adult life, he has the opportunity to participate in age-appropriate activities that aren’t facilitated by family members.”
