PACTT Learning Center celebrated its 25th Anniversary on March 16th at their Annual Work of Heart Dinner at the Drake Hotel in downtown Chicago. Over 350 attendees helped to honor prominent author and autism advocate Dr. Temple Grandin and were excited to hear her first person perspective on individuals with autism and their potential for a rich, meaningful life. Dr. Grandin's many accomplishments inspires the work at PACTT in providing greater access and choice for people on the autism spectrum. PACTT serves the communities of Oak Park and Rogers Park and offers programs that include a therapeutic day school for children, a transition program for teens, residences for children and adults, and adult vocational and job placement services. From its founding, the agency has established itself as a leader in providing evidence-based programs for young people with autism. Supported by a 25-year history of innovation, PACTT is inspired by a vision to fundamentally change the way people think about autism and community.
