Impact L'Atid Venture: Bridges- Bridges is a social program designed to forge relationships between young children on the autism spectrum. Through interactive activities and enriching curriculum, they will work together as a group to solve challenges and make their way through new ideas. The opportunities given to those living with special needs are often not the same as their neurotypical counterparts. By showing society and the participants what they are capable of, Bridges will help to build a future with stronger connections and equal chances of success.
