Letter From the President

Dear Friend,

Wayne GilpinFuture Horizons was created to meet the needs of teachers, therapists, and family members who face the challenge of autism. Our books, videos, and conferences bring you the most current information possible to aid in that challenge.

It is our strong belief that every child and adult with autism can improve and contribute to the lives of those who love them and, just as importantly, contribute to society.We at Future Horizons pride ourselves in bringing to the mission not only a strong sense of professionalism, but one that is also based on personal relationships. All of us have family members or friends who are affected.

Alex GilpinFuture Horizons would not exist today without two very special men. The first is my brother, Alex, whom I had the pleasure of growing up with as I watched him develop into a fine young man. Alex was a light that lit up lives wherever he went. 

Whether working with TEACCH in North Carolina, speaking at conferences, attending the family gatherings he enjoyed so much, working in the jobs he held, etc., his delightful sense of humor, courtesy, and caring improved the lives of all who knew him. You could not help but smile back at his infectious grin and I never heard him say an unkind word about anyone. 

Alex is the genesis for this company. My father, R. Wayne Gilpin, was the man who brought the company to life.  After writing the book inspired by Alex, Laughing and Loving with Autism, he found other materials that needed a good publisher. From there, he lovingly grew the company over twenty years to the powerhouse it is today. 

Both men are sorely missed. Their passion for life and love of learning lives on through this company. Thank you for being a part of it. 

About Future Horizons

In 2010 we added a subsidiary, Sensory World, focused solely on sensory issues experienced by those with autism or Sensory Processing Disorder (SPD). Our Purpose is spreading knowledge that betters the lives of those who live and work with these conditions. Devoted to supporting and fostering these works, Future Horizons is proud to have become the world leader in publications and conferences on both autism spectrum disorders and sensory issues.
