The mission of the Autism Initiative at Mercyhurst (AIM) is to facilitate and support the successful adjustment and progression of college students on the autism spectrum in all domains of college life, thereby broadening their vocational opportunities, and enhancing social and community engagement. The AIM program strives to accentuate each student’s abilities within the academic, social, emotional, and independent living domains, while building new skills within the domains where the student may be deficient.
Future Horizons was created to meet the needs of teachers, therapists, and family members who face the challenge of autism. Our books, videos, and conferences bring you the most current information possible to aid in that challenge.
It is our strong belief that every child and adult with autism can improve and contribute to the lives of those who love them and, just as importantly, contribute to society.We at Future Horizons pride ourselves in bringing to the mission not only a strong sense of professionalism, but one that is also based on personal relationships. All of us have family members or friends who are affected.
