Fresh Start School Graduates First Class of Students with Autism

FOCUS Alumni C.J. Jordan reflected "Before the ‘FOCUS years’ I was an ace at class assignments but had very few people that I was truly friends with. The true meaning of FOCUS is to teach kids [affected by Autism] how to get along with peers and adults, how to keep a conversation flowing and to learn how to have fun at the same time. With the help of everyone involved I made a lot of new friends and became a stronger person at the same time and it couldn't have been done without FOCUS!"
