Butler Rubin Sponsors 2017 Aspire Benefit

CHICAGO, April 10, 2017 – Butler Rubin was proud to sponsor Massachusetts General Hospital’s 17th Annual Aspire Spring Gala on March 30th at the Four Seasons Hotel in Boston.

This inspiring evening supported Aspire’s mission to help children, teens and adults with high cognitive autism spectrum disorder or a related profile develop the skills necessary to live full, independent lives. Proceeds from the event help ensure that Aspire’s services are accessible for all families and enable the expansion of program offerings.

Aspire is a highly successful, therapeutically-based program that serves children, teens and adults with high-functioning autism and related profiles. Additionally, the program supports more than 22 area school districts and conducts workshops serving 750 professionals each year. Aspire’s goal is to develop their participants’ social skills and to help them learn to become independent.  Individuals on the autism spectrum often have difficulties in the areas of social skills, communication, academic achievement, sensory integration and behavioral regulation. Their approach is to teach social and life skills and to apply other behavioral strategies in a small group, peer setting.  This approach not only allows staff to provide individualized coaching and support, but also ensures an ideal environment for participants to learn new skills.  Aspire wants to help individuals on the autism spectrum achieve their full potential.  They are committed to serving participants regardless of their economic background.

Formed in 1980, Chicago-based Butler Rubin assists clients nationally and internationally in complex business disputes, including antitrust law, class actions, defense of corporate directors and officers, labor and employment law, reinsurance, insurance, healthcare litigation, and insolvency.
