Future Horizons was created to meet the needs of teachers, therapists, and family members who face the challenge of autism. Our books, videos, and conferences are geared to bring you the most current information possible to assist 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, in many ways, 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. Virtually all of us have family members or friends who are affected.
Personally I am proud to be the father of a wonderful son, whom I had the immense pleasure of watching 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 Future Horizons conferences, attending the family gatherings he enjoyed so much, meeting people at our bookstores, 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.
He never, never said anything disparaging or demeaning about another person. I never heard him say an unkind or hateful word about anyone.
Alex made me a better man and is the genesis for this company. People often compliment me or my staff as they relate how our offerings have made their lives easier and better. With due deference to the fact that I have a terrific staff, we and you owe it all to him. Without him, Future Horizons would not exist.
His memory lives on through our efforts.
Thank you, Alex. I’m honored that you called me Dad.
R. Wayne Gilpin, President
