ASI Students Celebrate Autism Acceptance
Students from our Amherst and Buffalo schools got together in April 2019 to create a video celebrating Autism Acceptance All Year Long.
The principle underlying ASI’s Self-Advocacy group is simple: No one knows the needs of a person better than the person him or herself. They are the experts when it comes to knowing their needs. Take a look at what our ASI Self-Advocates have to say.

Inside the Sensory Room
With calming gradient lights, soft motions and etheric music we create an environment of controlled stimulations. Our Sensory Room has the perfect atmosphere for sensory decompression and is utilized before our individuals engage in other environments.
To meet the fluctuating sensory needs of an individual with autism, a proper sensory diet is often prescribed. This involves the use of sensory equipment that provides a balance of sensory input at levels controlled by the person who is on the autism spectrum.
