Getting a driver’s license can be challenging for anyone, but a lack of resources can make it especially difficult for an autistic person.
A driver’s license means so much more than simply being able to drive. It represents freedom and independence and is a sign of adulthood. For an autistic person, driving may seem out of reach. We are excited to introduce a program designed to help an autistic person navigate all of the steps necessary to safely drive on their own.

Motivation and Ability
Some people are ready and able to drive and have no questions. Others may want to drive but may be worried that they lack the necessary skills. Still others may have the ability but lack the desire and motivation. Our first step is to help you gain confidence about your ability to drive.Find Your Motivation and Ability
We start our education in a virtual classroom environment. We offer an 8-part live webinar series specific to autistic individuals and their families. We will teach sessions on motivation, sensory issues, disruptions, scripting, anxiety, getting pulled over, and so much more.
