What a wonderful program with an amazing staff. I recently partnered with CTA to teach adaptive martial arts classes and the students are great the aides are caring and enthusiastic and the founder Tina is passionate and knowledgeable. Im looking forward to a long and productive partnership.

I volunteered a few times back when it was Include Autism. I considered working here until I saw how some employees and kids were being treated by management. Staff played favorites with both employees and children. The cause of the organization was good but the employees working for the organization not so much. Hopefully the staff and the employees has changed since.

I volunteered and it was a great community program. Went out to New Childrens museum and got to do different activities. Got to interact directly with the kids in different aspects.
