Unlocking autism, one ingredient at a time.
Here at Cooking Autism, we are driven by an amazing mission; to do our part in supplying monetary, material, curriculum, and logistical support for in-school programs that focus on teaching children with neurological disorders (including autism) how to cook.
The purpose is not to create culinary experts, although that would be amazing; the goal is to allow these children to take part in the food preparation process...THEN THEY EAT IT!
The purpose is to help them to expand their palates while they learn critical, real-world communication and life skills, as they work together toward a common goal.
