Leap for Autism Video

Greystone Programs is dedicated to supporting children, adults, and families living with Autism and other developmental disabilities by enriching lives one person at a time.

Autism Spectrum Disorder affects 1 in 68 American children (1 in 42 boys)!

We offer a variety of services to over 500 children, adults, and seniors each year. Funding is through the NYS Office for People with Developmental Disabilities. However, Greystone offers vital services for which there is no funding. These include a range of therapeutic expressive arts – including music, art, dance, equine therapies and other services. 

We are so dedicated to enriching the lives of our individuals that we are willing to leap from a plane to raise awareness and funds! Thank you for supporting the mission of Greystone Programs!
