Autism is Apart of Society!
Each morning our students participate in brain teasers to test their mental sharpness and to prepare them for the day. Also, throughout the day, our students will undergo various challenges they have to overcome being, holding a conversation, giving direct eye contact, understanding directions given to them or even how to express their dislike of something.
Each week, our students will participate in fitness classes from a personal fitness instructor, yoga instructor or dance instructor. Students will also participate in group sport activities such as basketball, volleyball, or soccer.
Each student will undergo an interview process, where The Block staff will be able to get to know the individuals personality and the various blocks that stop our students from becoming successful and their integration into society. At the The Block, we don’t only touch the soul of our students with our mission, but our students touch our soul by being the amazing people they are.
