We work to promote Autism acceptance and strongly fight for Inclusion.

Welcome to Rockin The Spectrum!

     Hello everyone! My name is Linda, We are a family who has a loved one with severe Autism. My daughter is now an adult, she is nonverbal and needs 24/7 care. We have had many times in her life, where behaviors were an issue. Because of that, we were unable to get her the much needed help she and we needed! We ended up spending her whole life trying to find something that didn't exist, so we wanted and needed to change that. We don't turn away behaviors. We decided to open Rockin The Spectrum in July, 2019, to make a much needed change in the way our families are taken care of. We have a unique way of treating families and employees with the respect, safety, and consideration that everybody needs. We work as a team, to reach the next step! Our experience comes from raising my daughter, working in countless classrooms, helping families build IEPs, running and building a private specials needs school in Florida and working with several schools to design programs to help service children and adults, who the schools could not reach. We are a not-for profit 501 c 3,  We are on our way to big things!
