3rd Annual Race Toward Autism Awareness and Acceptance
Cooking Autism, Inc.
Our mission is to provide important life-skills programs to our neurodiverse community members, including autistics, so that each participant can gain independence and confidence in their abilities.
AUTISM COULD MEAN A CHALLENGING FUTURE
According to Autism Speaks, more than half of young adults with autism remain unemployed and unenrolled in higher education in the two years after high school, and nearly half of 25-year-olds with autism have never held a paying job.
BUT IT DOESN'T HAVE TO BE THIS WAY.
Research shows job activities that encourage independence reduce challenges and increase daily living skills. By supporting Cooking Autism, you equip educators to provide cooking and life-skills classes for students with Autism and other neurological challenges, enabling these students' social skills, language development, step-by-step instruction, and confidence to soar!
