Our pursuit of lifelong learning begins with our first steps and continues across the lifespan; we are in college for life! This is true for all of us, including individuals who have autism or other developmental disabilities. TERI provides programs for children and adults with special needs, beginning with early intervention and family supports and continuing through retirement and beyond. What we learn, develop, and provide in these programs serves as a model that can be replicated world-wide. TERI’s vision as a 501(c)(3) charity is to provide models of the best methods for assuring a life of quality for those who have special needs so they can be replicated internationally.
