Hidden Wings

mission:

Hidden Wings is a non-profit 501(c)3 corporation dedicated to nurturing the gifts of young adults with autism so that they might have full and productive lives in society.

Most high school graduates with autism are ill-prepared to face the challenges of the world. Hidden Wings is pioneering the development of a post-secondary school, a unique college specifically designed for those on the autistic spectrum.

The school is dedicated to the belief that everyone on the autistic spectrum possesses “Hidden Wings,” which are extraordinary gifts often masked by social limitations. Its programs emphasize:
• rigorous exercise
• a predictable and loving environment
• intellectual stimulation based upon the unique gifts of every student.

The goal is not the remediation of deficits but the cultivation of individual talents.
