The Pensacola office of FSU-CARD has entered into a partnership with the National Flight Academy (NFA) and Autism Pensacola to promote the inclusion of students with autism in their in tailored programs. In collaboration with API, CARD consultant Dr. Chrissy Ogilvie will provide recommendations and training to the staff at NFA on best practices for inclusion. Dr. Ogilvie will also be providing direct services to those students who attend the academy.
The National Flight Academy is America Camp Association (ACA) approved and provides all students the opportunity to experience immersive learning in a dynamic environment. Their program is offered on the virtual aircraft carrier, AMBITION, located adjacent to the National Naval Aviation Museum on Naval Air Station Pensacola.
FSU-CARD is Northwest Florida’s Center for Autism and Related Disabilities. CARD’s purpose is to serve individuals across the lifespan by helping them become valued members of their communities. Autism Pensacola serves families across Escambia and Santa Rosa counties as the leading connector and resource for autism support, advocacy, education, and networking opportunities in the Pensacola Bay Area.
NFA is looking forward to partnering with FSU-CARD and API to offer a wide range of programs (from 4 hour Adventures, three-day Cruises, and six-day Deployments).
