"I feel that AIS is most valuable because it provides its clients the opportunities to be contributing members within a community, as well as the opportunity to gain independence. AIS has become an integral part of many transition plans for students with disabilities from high school to the community and AIS provides many high school graduates with employment opportunities. I am very grateful for this!!!
This is a partnership we hope can continue as many young adults have benefited."
