Success Starts Here

Alumni are a vital part of Gateway’s community. In a very real sense, their lives are a tribute to Gateway’s program and to their parents. Our oldest graduates were the earliest beneficiaries of what was once a little-known concept: early intervention. Today, Gateway graduates number over 600, are spread across the United States, and are engaged in every aspect of life. They are doctors, lawyers, health aides, bankers, firemen, dancers, actors, musicians, college and high school students, and much more. Gateway is very proud to have partnered with their parents and—through our program and our reliance on the most effective instructional approaches for teaching bright students who learn differently—empowered these young people to join communities, create their own families, find satisfying work, and lead rich, fulfilling lives.

Life After Gateway

life_after_gateway_2016Every year, Gateway invites four to five alumni to participate in a panel discussion with the parents of current and incoming students. The alumni field all kinds of questions, including some parents might otherwise hesitate to ask. It is an opportunity for families to gain insight into the kinds of experiences and challenges their children may face at some future date and how they might cope with them. During Life After Gateway, parents are not only inspired by Gateway graduates, they also get to see self-advocacy in action. When our graduates describe their high school, college, and early work experiences, they demonstrate an understanding of their unique mixture of strengths and weaknesses and an ability to advocate for their needs.
