The Groden Network was founded by Doctors June and Gerry Groden in 1976 to fill what they saw as a void in maximally effective treatment of services for children with autism.

Forty years later, the program has expanded its services to individuals of all ages with a range of learning and behavioral disabilities through three corporations. Today we now operate 14 programs throughout Rhode Island and southeastern Massachusetts. Annually we serve thousands of individuals and their families.

While our programs have expanded our mission has remained the same:

To provide caring, person-centered, comprehensive continuum of supports across the lifespan for individuals with autism, other neuro-developmental disorders, and associated behavioral and life challenges, to lead productive, dignified, and satisfying lives.

This is achieved through professional expertise; research; technology; education and training; involving and supporting clients and families; and implementing effective and innovative strategies and techniques.
