About REED

Find out more about the REED Next Day and Residential programs.

We believe that every individual deserves the opportunity to live a meaningful and fulfilling life. 

Autism should not limit an individual’s opportunity to learn and grow. This thought was shared by a small group of parents who came together in 2003, desperate to find the right education for their
children with autism. That driving need inspired them to start REED Academy, which has since grown into a leading school for individuals with autism ages three to 21.

At age 21, these young adults age out of their state-funded education, leaving them with little to no guidance or resources at a pivotal time in their lives. “Parents often describe the transition as something like falling off a cliff,” explains Chantelle Walker, CEO, REED Next.

Over the next decade, approximately 1 million teens will enter adulthood and age out of school-based autism services.

REED Next: Filling a Critical Gap

Through day and residential programs, we provide support and learning opportunities that empower adults with autism to achieve their full potential and live as valued community members. Our team of experts collaborate with clients and their families to address individual needs, abilities, and interests—and provide a truly customized program.
