Pacific Autism Center for Education (PACE)
Profile ( less )
Target demographics: PACE was founded in 1989 by parents and educators to meet the specialized needs of children with autism and developmentally disabled persons and their families. Our strategic vision is to provide a lifetime continuum of services for individuals with autism through our four service areas: Children's Services, PACE School, Adult Day Program and Residential Group Homes. In our Children's Services we serve children from 18 months to 6 year olds. At PACE School we serve individuals who are impacted by moderate-to-severe autism, with an emphasis on non-verbal individuals (approximately 70% of our clients are non-verbal).
Direct beneficiaries per year: PACE school services up to 60 students annually. PACE PACE Children's Services meet the needs of over 60 children and their families. Adult Day currently enrolls 5-10 clients and PACE Residential program houses 36 clients in six individual facilities.
