ACES - Achieving Community Experiences and Skills
DDS partnered with Easter Seals to introduce a social club for children in grades 6 – 12 with high functioning autism.

The program is designed by a professional recreational therapist and is overseen by professionally trained staff. The group meets Friday nights at the DDS-Alley Learning Center from 6:00 to 7:30 p.m. and runs in six-week sessions throughout the year.
