- Spectrum 360 challenges expectations for children, adolescents, and adults across the full spectrum of autism and related disabilities through innovative special education, employment supports, and community-building. We do not define individuals by their disabilities. Using evidence-based approaches, we push the boundaries of traditional programs and services, helping each person we serve to discover unique talents, develop self-worth, and maximize opportunities for independence, self-direction, citizenship, and community integration. Our Values: We see individuals. We do not define people by their disabilities. We value, educate, and support the "whole person."We offer students and adults similar opportunities to those available to their typical peers.We use evidence-based practices tailored to meet each individual`s needs. The community is our classroom - we value and engage in community-based instruction and integration.We serve individuals across the full spectrum of autism.We work to create a deep sense of belonging and connection for the individuals we serve, their families, our staff, and our supporters.We work to create strong positive peer relationships and community connections.As the field of autism is ever changing, we research and implement innovative programs, services, supports, and strategies. We are thought leaders, and as such, offer education, training, support, and guidance to families, other educators, and the larger autism community.

Our son who is 17 has been a student at TCI since he was 5 years old. We feel extremely fortunate that he has been a part of the TCI program throughout his school years. TCI has worked with us and our son to overcome his challenges and they work with him to reach his highest potential. Although there have been a couple of teachers who we weren't thrilled with (over the 12 years he’s been at TCI), the vast majority of TCI’s staff are absolutely incredible. TCI does a great job of teaching each student based on their individual needs and potential. We are excited about their adult program, The Center for Independence, and the possibility of our son continuing to grow with TCI's programs.

The only way private schools can build their financial security is through gifts. Major gifts offer proof of how deeply many donors feel about their private schools. Their munificence is a wonderful example to others.
