Spotlight: Making a Difference
SHENANIGANS, the founding program of Autism Improvised, is about communication - relating - flexible thinking - being open to new ideas - adapting to change - understanding context - having fun and making friends. We use the techniques of improvisational theater to practice games and exercises that address the social challenges and rigid thinking of those who are mildly-to-moderately affected by autism or who share similar traits.

Fitness with Karen on Wednesday!
They all worked really hard for Karen! They did many upper body and lower body strengthening exercises.They love the weight and mat work. It's exciting to see them get excited about working out and doing what's needed to stay healthy.
Volunteer activity for St. Andrew Catholic Church
They independently inserted pencils inside 1,000 envelopes! They worked so hard on this activity. We do vocational work throughout the week, whether its practice (vocational unit) or "real" (volunteer activities for church and Huntcliff), and they love it. Also, as you can see from the pictures above, at Huntcliff (every Thursday and Friday), they setup the tables for lunch by placing flowers, baskets of crackers, silverware, and napkins on the tables in their correct spots.
