LEARNING, WORKING, CREATING

The spring semester of the Autistry Comprehensive Adult Program has begun. Students take academic and physical fitness classes at College of Marin. Pictured (above, left to right) are  Autistry students Christopher, Mark, Jacob, Riley, and Courtney and Autistry mentors Sara Gardner and Phil Lewis at the first day of class for Autistry students at College of Marin.

Autistry clients work at Cadence Farm in Sonoma, working with rescued thoroughbred racehorses, helping to maintain the farm and keeping all the various riding equipment in top shape. Pictured (above) is Hank and Matt Glenwright, the program manager in charge of the Autistry/Cadence Farm vocational training partnership.

Autistry client Chloe is pictured (above), working in the Autistry Studios, a unique therapeutic makerspace in San Rafael for autistic teens and adults. The Autistry Core Workshop Program is an inspiring, stimulating, therapeutic Maker/STEAM program that prepares students for adult life by growing executive function skills and developing talents while building confidence, mental resiliency, and independence.

At the Western Railway Museum in Rio Vista, Autistry crews help restore historic trolley cars, do general museum upkeep and engage with the public.  Pictured (above) is Autistry client Ian, working at the Western railway Museum. Autistry Studios’ mission is to help autistic teens and adults, and others with learning differences, become successfully independent by leveraging their interests and talents while creating a supportive and vibrant community.
