After School and Weekend Programs

Have Dreams’ Social, Communication and Independent Living Skills (SCILS) Program for Individuals with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) was the first program of its kind in the Midwest.  Programs are 1 ½ – 2 hours in duration and are offered on a quarterly basis. Typical children learn intuitively how to communicate, form meaningful relationships and naturally interact with others from infancy through adulthood, while individuals with ASD need to be painstakingly taught. Our innovative SCILS programs address autism’s core deficit areas of communication and socialization, and help individuals develop skills to the best of their capability and function at their greatest level of independence.

Teen/Young Adult Club

Our Teen and Young Adult Club is a place for teens and young adults with ASD to socialize, make friends and share common interests in a safe and structured environment. Each class is based around an age-appropriate pop culture theme. At our Park Ridge location, community outings are incorporated such as bowling, movies, etc., during each quarterly session.

An intake specialist can help you discern which program is right for your loved one. Please email us at for a personal consultation.
