Board of Directors


Comments From Our Executive Director

Autism is not so much a disability as a way of being, a personality, or a form of expression.

"The creative capabilities I have seen in so many of our Autistic children have been nothing less than miraculous. Their abilities to imagine and create solutions to challenges we have yet to face or fear to face have shown a continued recurrent pattern over the years. Tracks 4 Kids exists to not only strengthen the creative potential and resiliency of these children but also to help give them a voice so the wider public can hear the songs that they sing."

— Dr. Brian Grandjean
