"... the most important considerations in devising educational programs for children with autistic spectrum disorders have to do with recognition of the autism spectrum as a whole, with the concomitant implications for social, communicative, and behavioral development and learning, and with the understanding of the strengths and weaknesses of the individual child across areas of development."

Founded by parents in 2009, Partnership for Extraordinary Minds (xMinds) is unique among organizations serving individuals with autism by focusing solely on improving the educational experiences and outcomes of students on the spectrum. Given appropriate support that addresses their unique strengths and social, emotional, and cognitive needs, students on the autism spectrum can learn the academic and adaptive skills necessary to pursue higher education and/or meaningful work. xMinds endeavors to create synergy among parents, educators, professionals, and policy makers that can lead to life-changing benefits for these students. Join us in our mission by becoming a member today.
