HISTORY
Steve and Sharon Whitlow, a couple with a 15-year-old son on the autism spectrum, founded GTC in August 2014 in response to a need for specialized transition services for individuals with autism transitioning out of high school and into adulthood in the Greater Baton Rouge area. GTC received tax-exempt status in April 2015. The Board of Directors and an Advisory Board, consisting of individuals with professional experience and training in areas of interest to the program, were formed in August 2014 and began planning meetings, and in July 2015, Cassie Dinecola was hired as Executive Director. The inaugural programming began in Fall 2015.
