Oregon’s only year-round school for children, teens, and young adults with Autism and related learning differences.

Eric Panigada

Compass Community Outreach Coordinator

Eric is originally from San Francisco, California and has recently relocated to Oregon. He was originally introduced to the field of Autism while he was a manager at the YMCA, where he was enlisted as a personal trainer for special needs children. Since 2005, he has been working in the field of Autism as an ABA therapist and as an instructional assistant. Eric's favorite thing about working in this field is supporting students identify and fulfill their own dreams, while building their independent, leisure, and employment skills.

When he's not teaching, Eric enjoys the outdoors, music, art, fashion, and spending time with his son and daughter, both avid swimmers.
