Autism is a challenge affecting more and more families across the US. While I'm not interested in engaging in the great debate about why this is the case, I thought I would share this recent discovery. If you live here, and have a child on the autism spectrum, you may already be aware, but if your considering Colorado Springs, this might be a great resource for your family!
I was showing houses on the northwest side of Colorado Springs yesterday (worthy of a blog post all it's own sometime soon!) when I was intrigued by a gorgeous Tuscan style building just up the hill past my turn. I was a minute early, so I drove on up to check it out. I only snagged a picture of the sign & building setting, and looked them up when I go home. The Alpine Autism Center offers full and part day programs during their 8a-4p hours. Their site offers a plethora of information about autism and the services they offer, so I'm going to direct you to them- www.alpineautismcenter.org.... I just wanted to make this resource known for those not yet aware or researching it as a decision factor in coming to Colorado Springs.
This tucked away and gorgeous location is great, I'm sure you could stop by for assistance as well. From Garden of the Gods Rd, go west to the "end", turn right/north on 30th, left on Flying W ranch, Left on Stoneridge left on Fieldstone, follow up hill and it ends at their property.
