Children with autism become adults with autism. Glenwood boasts the only service of its kind in Alabama to serve adults with autism. Adults with autism share the common human goals of being respected members of the community, participating in activities of interest, maintaining valuable relationships and living as independently as possible. The services they need to succeed can be as varied as the people themselves. That is why Glenwood offers multi-faceted Adult Services programs to help adults live, work and learn in environments that are best suited for their individual needs.
