Diverse voices make society more inclusive.

Exceptional Minds works year-round to include and employ our artists in the entertainment industry and beyond. Our graduates impact the stories that are told and reshape the autism narrative.

Autism Acceptance Month is a celebration of our community and an opportunity to lift those around us. During this time of year, we are reminded of how important the Exceptional Minds journey is for our students and alumni. We impact their long-term success, as they transform their talent into a lifetime of purpose by building careers and living their dreams.

Please join us in advancing acceptance for those on the autism spectrum by watching and sharing our April events that spotlight our students’ journeys.

Here are links to some of our highlights running throughout the month of April:
