Autism Connections Program

Did you know that Diamond has an extra-special program for autistic students? The MCPS Autism Connections Program serves children whose needs are mostly social in nature. Only two elementary schools in all of MCPS have this awesome program, and Diamond is one of them! How cool is that? Email specialneeds@despta.org if you want to learn more, or connect with other families in the program.
