What is Hidden Wings?
Hidden Wings is a place where young people with autism can spread their own wings, learning life skills and
how to participate with others in a warm and supportive environment.
“The Billingtons are building a future for every child in their program, which is a model well worth emulating. The world needs many more such havens.” –Oliver Sacks, Physician, Author, Neurologist
“Hidden Wings” is an apt title for a desperately needed, timely project. School and program availability for K-12 students with autism ends abruptly with high school graduation and adulthood. Into this regrettable vacuum comes a program that provides continued opportunity for experiencing greater self-worth, increased socialization and more independence. To my knowledge there is no [post-secondary school] in this country or elsewhere that is designed uniquely for those on the autistic spectrum. It will be an inspiration for many. I heartily endorse the work of Hidden Wings.” –Darold Treffert, M.D., World’s expert on autistic savant, coach to Dustin Hoffman in “Rain Man”
