Prepare to LAUNCH

Since 2009, LAUNCH (formerly Learning Academy Services) has been at the forefront of creating innovative programming focused on improving employment and post-secondary outcomes of people on the autism spectrum. The LAUNCH approach promotes self-actualization, supports dignity of risk, and seeks to help every person achieve their career aspirations.

Today, we offer LAUNCH Academy; a 30-week transition program, employment services, business focused solutions, and transition services for adolescents and young adults.

We have expanded our reach to persons with lifelong or acquired disabilities in our LAUNCH Technology Programs and youth transition focused programs.
