TheAnswerInc delivers on it’s promise

Offering a range of programs that focus specifically on community needs related to families with Autism, Development Disorders and Learning Disabilities

Family Advocacy

We advocate resources to help ensure child’s educational needs are being met. To pursue special education service assistance through school-based programs, your local school system will first need to evaluate your child.


Support Groups

We help to empower parents, caregivers and the community by facilitating a number of support groups. Parenting isn’t ever easy, and raising a child with special needs is even more challenging.


Community Education

We are committed to expanding our own knowledge and that of others to ensure that we help to offer the highest possible quality of life for families impacted by Autism or developmental disorders across the lifespan.


Recreation Programs

Through our recreation programs, we sponsor field trips beyond the local community to experience a variety of fun recreational activities. Scheduled outings include theater, sporting events, peer dances and horseback riding camp!
