Welcome!

Creating Community & Potential for People with Autism & Related Conditions

Autism is the fastest growing developmental disability, and its prevalence is increasing. In 1970, one in 2,000 people was diagnosed with autism in the United States. Today it is estimated to be one in 54. Services for people with autism transitioning to adulthood are greatly needed, which is why Easterseals launched Greenleaf Neurodiversity Community Center (Greenleaf NCC) ito offer new vocational exploration opportunities and structured social activities focused on this special population’s capabilities and strengths.

Greenleaf NCC Social Creativity Clubs that started in the fall of 2019 had to pivot quickly to Zoom and Google Classroom during COVID-19 and have continued to keep all students engaged, added new programming and participants, hosted a virtual art show, and launched a Nature Club.

In partnership with Austin ISD, Greenleaf NCC is offering a new transition school option for students who are 18 years old or older and have autism or related neurodivergent conditions, interests in creative arts and/or technology, and a desire to continue their education in the public school system through project-based learning in classroom and community settings.
