The Kennedy Center has received a grant for 13 iPads from the Doug Flutie Foundation’s Allison Keller iPad Program. This award provides the center’s PARTNERS program with essential enhancements that will benefit transitioning students with autism and special needs. PARTNERS (Providing Alternative Resources Through Natural Experiences and Rediscoveries for Students) has been in existence for nearly 25 years and is designed as an extension of the classroom.
This grant will support youth with Autism Spectrum Disorder within two areas of The Kennedy Center’s PARTNERS program. Specifically, the iPads will assist students ages 14 to 21 that transition into three autism-specific Community Experience programs.
