Empowering ASD Adults with Knowledge for Successful Living.
The ASD Adult Achievement Center was formed as a 501(c)3 non-profit organization in the fall of 2016. Our founder, Paula Breeden is passionate about helping ASD adults reach new levels of achievement. Inspired by her journey raising a son with ASD (autism spectrum disorder), Paula has been serving the Central Florida ASD adult community as a Life Coach, Career Coach, Social Skills Coach and Executive Function Coach since 2014. Her coaching practice, Transform Your Life Coaching is located nearby. After leading several workshops as the Adult Programs Facilitator for UCF CARD (Center for Autism and Related Disabilities), Paula began to develop her own programs and the ASD Adult Achievement Center was born.

Our mission is to provide an environment where adults with ASD (autism spectrum disorder) can come together to develop skills, strategies and solutions that promote greater achievement and independence.
Paula has a unique gift for creating solution based programs that focus on developing skills and implementing strategies. Programs are structured, workshop based and goal directed. She sees each individual as capable of being a whole person with natural gifts and abilities. Recognizing these abilities allows each individual's personality to shine through.
“You are not broken and you don't need to be fixed.”

If you have been touched by autism, get involved to help us carry out our mission. We accept volunteers based on what you can bring to our organization. College students can earn community service credits for school in addition to getting on the job experience. Donations are also vital to our growth, as we use them for program facilitation, development and outreach.
