Just this week, Trevor headed to his first day at Suffolk Community College. We are honored to have awarded him a Flying Point Foundation for Autism scholarship to help pay for studies. Trevor graduated from Mattituck High School in June. Way to go, Trevor!
When the T-shirts arrive, we always know camp is just a short time away! The first day is August 24 and we look forward to seeing returning and new campers!
Refreshing Help For Kids with Autism!
We are so happy with our new lemonade stand made by the amazing Hannah Cook. She made it foldable for easy transport and simple enough for a kid to set up. We will be at the Polish Festival (August 20 & 21) and at Hamptons Yoga Festival (August 27 & 28). VOLUNTEERS will definitely be needed! It's a great day of fun for you and your child and a great way to give back! Send us an email if you're interested in a block of time. Sign-up sheets coming soon.
Today our families will be at the gorgeous Parrish Art Museum for another of the Parrish Family Access programs, a partnership with the Flying Point Foundation for Autism to make the museum accessible to those who need more support. Thank you to the Parrish for recognizing and then accommodating this need in our community!

Made with essential oils including lavender, chamomile, vetiver and bergamot, the Peace products are all natural and will leaving you feeling, well, peaceful.
Brittany Flaherty of East Moriches is the winner of the very first $1,000 scholarship awarded by the FPF4A. It is given to a graduating senior with autism who will be attending college and Brittany is headed for Suffolk Community College this fall. The daughter of Antonia and Kevin Flaherty, Brittany hopes to be a museum curator. This is an amazing accomplishment for a young lady whose parents were told she'd never learn to read.
We were thrilled to present her with a check toward her studies and we have no doubt she will succeed given her extensive high school resume, which includes marching band, Key Club, junior prom committee, Rotary Interact, yearbook and so much more. Congrats Brittany from all of us at FPF4A!
