Our Mission


The mission of the Social Communication Foundation is to improve lifetime outcomes for young people with social communication challenges and to provide advanced communication skills for non-challenged communicators who interact with them in many areas of life.


We envision centers for social communication around the country, with input from experts around the world, where everyone benefits:

  • People with social communication challenges.
  • High school students with typical skills seeking advanced communication abilities and opportunity for leadership.
  • College and graduate interns in many fields involving social communications.
  • Educators wanting improved school environments.
  • Providers who will receive referrals for young people who need training before participating in our Inclusion Teaming™ programs.
  • Employers seeking ways to increase effective communications among employees.
  • Mediators who want to give a voice to all participants.
  • Families desiring less tension and better understanding among its members.
