Autism Treatment & Art
Last week, we were pleased to offer a new autism treatment activity – our first ever group art workshop. The mentor-led workshop, hosted at Immaculate Conception Catholic School, allowed mentors and youth to collaborate as part of the Legends Mentoring Program.
Several youth from the Jake’s House community were able to socialize and refine their artistic skills together – the result, a brilliantly painted raccoon which we’re proud to announce, will be unveiled and displayed at the Canadian National Exhibition in August, along with other animals painted by special needs youth. Each child will be recognized for their talents by having their names featured on a plaque at the CNE; they’ve also received tickets to attend the CNE Gallery.
As our Legends Mentoring Program expands, we continue to introduce additional autism treatments through social activities and services for youth and adults living with autism. This year we plan to provide more ways for the autism community to socialize and experience life-changing interactions.
