The vision of Heartspring's CARE Program is to meet the unique needs of families by providing resources and services within a community of collaboration centered on autism spectrum disorders. We believe that all individuals with autism spectrum disorders deserve and require evidence-based interventions and services that will allow them to reach their potential and participate as fully as possible in family, school and community life. At the same time, we recognize that such interventions and services must be cost effective so that parents can maximize the limited funding available and access the services available for their child.

SSTAR Scouts will participate in various “scout” activities that will target specific areas of deficits related to autism spectrum disorders. SSTAR Scouts provides individuals the opportunity to work together on many projects that ultimately results in sustained social connections within their home and community. While many of the Scouts might have very intense and limited areas of interests, our goal is to expand those areas of interest while increasing social opportunities and success throughout their daily lives. Individuals will be working towards accomplishing goals outlined to target specific areas of deficit such as; social/emotional skills, higher executive functioning skills and organizational skills. Within the SSTAR Scout program, creative and innovative projects will allow all individuals to make positive connections within their community. The vision of SSTAR Scouts is to provide a structured, fun and safe learning environment with opportunities for the Scouts to acquire and learn new skills. These core skills will facilitate a positive and productive management of real life situations that ultimately becomes the catalyst towards a happier, more fulfilling life.
