A Program for Young Adults on the Autism Spectrum

Kevin Gersh, Founder

Kevin Gersh, Founder

“As someone who has struggled with the frustration and stigma of learning differences, I find it wonderfully ironic that I've made education my career.”

A Message from Kevin

At The Gersh Experience, our mission is helping young adults on the Autism Spectrum reach their full potential. Our goal is Independence. Our staff of professionals takes pride in working with each student to assist them in their transition to independent adulthood. In our 20 years of experience working with young adults with Autism, we have learned that a standardized program cannot meet the needs of this diverse population. We offer a unique model in which a carefully customized program is created with each student's learning style and specific challenges in mind. This model allows for customization of support across all areas (social skills, independent living skills, life skills and other significant areas).

We have created a family atmosphere that encourages social interaction and skill development in a peer-centered, supported environment. This naturally leads to emotional and interpersonal growth for each student while our systematic program of training develops the specific skills required for self-sufficiency. Our residential living environment fosters a small community feeling where the students play an integral role in the day-to-day activities on campus.
