The RIDE vision is to become the most comprehensive one-stop-shop for parents and caretakers of individuals with developmental delays, disabilities, and learning differences nationwide. RIDE will pilot our services in the Autistic community in Southern California, expanding in year two to cover additional developmental disabilities such as ADHD, cerebral palsy, and learning differences on a national level.
RIDE also aims to make institutions like schools more inclusive spaces for individuals with disabilities and learning differences nationwide. Through a wide range of institutional partnerships and original programs and curricula, RIDE embodies United Nations Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) #4: To ensure inclusive and equitable quality education and promote lifelong learning opportunities for all.
RIDE is a community of warriors created by parents, for parents. We focus on providing 'advocacy as a service' (AAAS) for parents and care providers of children with developmental disabilities and/or learning differences, helping to ensure that their children receive the support and services they need.
The RIDE mission is to help ease the challenging 'RIDE' of caring for individuals with disabilities and/or learning differences by serving as a centralized advocacy and resource hub for parents and care providers. In addition to directly supporting parents and children through advocacy and support programs, RIDE also educates community stakeholders such as schools on how to better support the neurodiverse community.
