Autism Shifts (501c3) is evolving. The non-profit is re-branding as NEUROSHIFTS to reflect the organization’s expansion to serve more families with neurodivergent young adults and work within corporate settings to help support Neurodiversity.
Neurodiversity is a growing movement and encompasses; Autism, ADHD, Dyslexia, Dyspraxia, and all those with neurological differences.
Vicky Westra, the founder of Autism Shifts (now NEUROSHIFTS), reflected on the organization’s journey, having served hundreds of families in the Tampa Bay area. “Our daughter Gabbi is on the spectrum and was our initial inspiration for establishing Autism Shifts. We are now ready for the next step of our evolution to ensure we can help and support more families whose members are Neurologically divergent. We want to support neurodiverse individuals and families at home and in employment settings in the Tampa Bay area and beyond. We’ve built some great corporate relationships during our Autism Shifts journey and want to expand upon those efforts”.
NEUROSHIFTS is launching its new brand with a “Get Your Glow On” event, on Friday, April 23, from 6 pm to 9 pm at the Museum of Science and Industry (MOSI) located at 4801 E. Fowler Ave. in Tampa.
