Anderson Center for Autism announced the addition of yet another business in the Hudson Valley that will now offer a supportive environment for those with autism.

Thanks in part to financial assistance from Dutchess County the staff at Bounce! in Poughkeepsie recently completed the Autism Supportive Environment (ASE) program taught by Anderson Center for Autism.

According to Anderson, ASE is a community partnership that was created to assist businesses in understanding, serving and supporting individuals with ASD and their families. Since the program's creation in 2012, more than 40 business have become Autism Supportive Environments. Just another step forward for Dutchess County and their #ThinkDIFFERENTLY campaign.

In honor of the new certification Bounce! will be holding two open houses to help educate the community on what their location will be offering as a ASE facility. The first will be held on Saturday, April 22nd 9am-10am for families of children with ASD. The second for caregivers of adults with ASD on Saturday, April 29th from 9-10am.
