If you read this blog regularly, you may have heard about GCSS’ Georgia Adult Autism Program.  But even if you don’t, you’re still welcome!

The GAAP is hosting its Open House from 2-5 PM tomorrow.  Members of the disability community and their families, providers, employees of GCSS, and philanthropists who have helped make the program possible will all be attending.  Snacks and refreshments will be provided!

There may be an opportunity to take photos; for clarification, if you are present at this event, no one will take your or your family member’s photo without your express written permission.

Also, in the near future, expect to see a partner website for the Autism Program.


About gcsscommunity

My name is Eric Pudalov, and I work as Community Events Coordinator with Georgia Community Support and Solutions, whose mission is to provide creative, life-enriching solutions to people with developmental disabilities and their families. I became interested in this field, however, due to having a disability myself; namely, I had brain surgery in 1996 at age 14, to remove a benign tumor. Following this, I had many difficulties with short-term memory, loss of strength, confusion, and emotional control. Fortunately, at present, I've recovered much of what I'd lost. Despite some setbacks, I graduated high school with honors, and received an academic scholarship to Adelphi Univ., where I earned a BA in Communications. Since then, I've held a number of different jobs and internships, among them a TA position at Sylvan Learning Center, and work as a "Service Leader" with Hands on Atlanta. Since living in GA, I've also been involved with two programs (including GCSS) that serve people with disabilities. My experience has included sharing apartments with adults with autism and other disorders. Though my so-called "limitations" may differ from those of others in the program, these experiences have helped me to realize that people, overall, are capable of much more than we may at first perceive.
