Our Story

0827001751 Right now CDC estimates 1 in 88 children is diagnosed with an autism spectrum disorder.  Behind each of these diagnoses are parents that pour their lives into helping their children along the journey, no matter how many challenges lay ahead.  After 7 years of experience alongside parents of children with autism spectrum disorders, I realized that there are very few programs catered to their needs for leisure and social occupations.  It is through countless experiences in the field and my love of dancing that has inspired this program to become a reality.  Grace Covenant PCA has kindly offered space to start this unique program in Blacksburg, VA that will not only benefit children with autism in the area, it will also reward the hard work of their parents.  Please read our mission statement for an overview of our goals and watch as we grow to meet and expand upon them.

The first lesson series will begin in January 2013 with the help of qualified dance instructors, volunteers from local organizations, and our generous sponsors.
