Our History

Beyond the Spectrum initially opened its doors as a therapy clinic in 2007. When we found that the greater need in our community was a school for children with Autism and related disorders, Beyond the Spectrum reopened as an Education Center in the fall of 2010! Since then, our programs have grown from eleven students spanning three classrooms to almost one-hundred students spanning seventeen classrooms!

At Beyond the Spectrum, we believe that every child deserves to be loved and accepted for who they are. We are here to support both the children and families of our community who are affected by Autism and other related disorders. Let us show how the environment at Beyond the Spectrum can change your child's life. 

A Message from Our Executive Director
At Beyond the Spectrum, our mission will always revolve around serving families in our community affected by Autism and other related diagnoses. We serve children ages 3-22 with autism and related abilities in Manatee, Sarasota, and surrounding counties. Set up a tour to see the difference a culture of love can make for you and your child.
