News from our Director!

Spring (and the pollen) is definitely upon us! NBA staff and families have been actively participating in many local activities such as the All in For Autism and the Can Do! events.  We are extremely proud of NBA learner, Spencer Neher, for his first place overall finish in the Can Do! 10k. We are also very proud of our learners that participated in the local and state Special Olympics!

            A number of NBA learners are graduating from high school and heading off to traditional and nontraditional college programs as well exciting District transition programs; we wish them all the best of luck!

            Looking toward the second part of 2016, we are excited that NBA’s Jordanian affiliate, The Star Project, will be hosting an Open House on May 28th.  We also anxiously await new NBA babies as both Nicole Hoffman and Jennifer Skadden are expecting.

            Attention this summer will be focused on the re-introduction of NBA art camps, as well as increased Community Based Intervention Program offerings, including a Parent Training and “Day in the Life” half day pilot program, and our enhanced Summer Small Group Intervention Program. 

            We will also be gearing up for AFA 2016, Glitz, Glamour and Gatsby, on October 1st. Please join us for a fun-filled evening celebrating the work of NBA’s staff and our tireless families and learners.

            Thank you to all of NBA’s families, friends, and supporters!  Your continued dedication to our mission is awe inspiring and very much appreciated.



Thanks so much,



Stacey Shook, PhD, BCBA-D
