In the wake of a life-altering diagnosis on September 11, 2001, Matt and Susan Brennan's world shifted when their youngest son, Blake, was diagnosed with Autism. Faced with the immediate need for intensive early intervention, the Brennan’s encountered the harsh reality of a waitlist for crucial services. Undeterred by the challenges, this resilient couple turned their personal journey into a mission for change. In 2003, fueled by the unwavering determination to ensure that no child with autism in Cincinnati would go without essential services, Matt and Susan Brennan took matters into their own hands. The founders channeled their experience, empathy, and a deep commitment to the community to establish the Cincinnati Center for Autism. Through this endeavor, they sought to create a haven where families navigating the complexities of autism could find timely and comprehensive support, turning adversity into an opportunity for positive transformation in the lives of countless families.
