Who We Are

Established by volunteers in 2007, Founded and led by Randy & Kim Wolf, a team of professionals developed a program of supports that proved life-changing for their family. Their son, Jack, had been diagnosed with autism at eighteen months and was engaging in the most destructive behaviors associated with the disorder. As their programming helped Jack emerge from a place of isolation to a place of connection, Randy and Kim were relieved but not satisfied. Randy and Kim galvanized a group of volunteers, experts and the community to start Turning Pointe Autism Foundation in order to create programming for more students. Turning Pointe would be dedicated to best practice approaches to supporting students on the spectrum.

Turning Pointe strives to raise the quality of educational supports for children and young adults with autism. As a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization, we rely on the partnership of volunteers, donors, school districts and Employment Partners to build a thriving center for students learning with autism.
