What is The Ed Asner Family Center?

The Ed Asner Family Center is a one-stop shop for neurodivergent individuals and their families seeking wholeness in all attitudes of life. The Center acts as an oasis of balance and thought, of interaction and education. Most importantly, The Center gives children and adults of all levels of ability a chance at dignity, confidence, and self-respect.

At The Ed Asner Family Center, we do not only cater to the needs of the neurodivergent individual. We aim to enroll the complete family and help them meet the challenges they face with grace.

What is Offered at The Ed Asner Family Center?

We offer arts and career advancement programs at our Center after school and on the weekends, as well as counseling and mindfulness classes. These classes and sessions help promote self-confidence and balance. Something that translates into all areas of life, including an area that needs much attention in the neurodiversity world, employment. Over 80% of individuals with a cognitive difficulty are unemployed or underemployed.
