    The Autism Project, Inc. is a non-profit organization serving
    students on the Autism Spectrum in southern Maryland. We
    work with students on all levels of the spectrum upon initial
    diagnosis through adulthood. We pride ourselves on adapting
    to the ever evolving needs of our students.  

    Behavior, sensory skills and play are primary concerns for your
    younger students while socialization, vocational skills and daily
    living skills are main the focus for our older students.

    Our programs emphasize social skills, communication,
    recreation/leisure skills, community skills, daily living skills and the
    generalization of academic skills.

    Programs here offer our students training in:
    •  Generalized academic subjects such as math, reading, and writing for daily use
    •  Social skills including communication, sharing, taking turns, waiting, being
      flexible and following directions
    •  Daily living skills: grooming, personal hygiene, and age appropriate chores
    •  Recreational and leisure skills that encourage them to participate in community
      service projects
    •  Pre-vocational skills in preparation for adult life

    Our Mission
    To educate, advocate for and empower individuals on the Autism Spectrum, their families, and communities; and to build mutually
    beneficial relationships among them.  

    Core Values

    1. Learning should be individualized and occur across all developmental domains
    Our students come to us with very diverse and specialized needs. We strive to work with
    each student at their level while maintaining age appropriate activities. We look for opportunities
    to teach the "whole child" and develop skills in all developmental domains.

    2. Therapy should be collaborative
    The Autism Project makes every effort to collaborate with families and other professionals
    delivering therapeutic activities to the student.
    We realize that collaboration is essential to progress and ensures consistency within programming.

    3. An eclectic approach leads to the greatest progress
    The Autism Project does not exclusively follow any one particular treatment approach,but rather
    employs multiple techniques to best suit the individual. We pride ourselves on using the best
    practices available for students on the spectrum; in that we realize what may work for one student
    may not work for another. Some of the treatment approaches commonly utilized in our therapies
    include TEACCH (Treatment and Education of Autistic and Related Communication-Handicapped
    Children), Sensory Integration, Social Stories, PECS (Picture Exchange Communication System),
    Incidental Teaching, Floor time, Discrete Trial Training, Montessori and Daily Life Therapy
