Description

Join the leadership of the nonPareil Institute to learn how they are turning lives around for adults with ASD seeking careers in coding, technology, game development and app creation! nonPareil is gearing up to open an expansion center in Orlando. Learn more about the program, the plans and how you can get involved to create superior career options for individuals with ASD.


Featured on NPR, NBC Nightly News and USA Today, nonPareil is getting noticed for its innovative approach to building on the strengths and interests of adults with ASD. Its first full-time nonPareil operation began on the campus of SMU-in-Plano, TX in September 2010. This site, which opened with 8 students, quickly grew to 52 students in the first 8 months. One year later, more space was acquired, and the program grew to over 80 students. The program now has over 200 active Crewmembers between 2 locations, with more on the way--including one in Central Florida.


Come hear the leadership describe their vision, outcomes and plan for expanding to the State of Florida!

What nP parents are saying...

“As I walked through the building... it struck me that all the staff at nonPareil truly do 'get it'. The 'it' that as parents we search for our kid's entire lives... the place where they not only 'fit in' but are seen to be of value. I literally held back tears!”

K.F.

“THANK YOU for all you are doing for our son! He has NEVER EVER been happier anywhere else, as he is there! He has NEVER been so interested or engaged in learning as he is there. You have struck a cord in his mind and soul and there are no words to describe as a parent how that makes me feel. That finally he feels invested, interested and committed to something! You are doing Gods work in my opinion, I feel blessed everyday for you all! From the bottom of my heart THANK YOU!!!”
