Making life meaningful for children with autism spectrum disorders has been Connie Coulter’s passion for over 20 years as a special education teacher, consultant, presenter and advocate.
As the Director of CARE and Autism Outreach at Heartspring in Wichita, Kansas, Connie initiated the Heartspring CARE Program providing opportunities for parents to be a part of a supportive, welcoming network of professionals and other parents who understand and appreciate autism spectrum disorders and the struggles families often face. Through the CARE Program, parents and children attend workshops, camps and conferences specifically targeted for families with autism.
Connie believes that by raising awareness and supporting local families, we are in fact impacting lives around the world. “The more we share and care about those around us, the more we can learn, grow and become one community of people passionate about changing the lives of those diagnosed with an autism spectrum disorder,” she said.
