Cass M.I.N.D. Academy
Autistic Leaning Center
Business, Art, and Music
Our program for Autism Spectrum Disorder is unique. The expectation of creativity produces pleasant surprises nurturing the hidden abilities of our students. CASS MIND leadership team, managers and faculty, are concerned, caring individuals. Sue, the mother of a 16-year-old son with autism, expounds that the whole aspect of puppets has helped her son both academically, as well as socially. When he talks he can really just embrace the puppet character without his nervous giggles that has developed because of anxiety and autism. Seth has developed friendships with other children in the dramas, which is a vital piece to the, “Autism symptom puzzle."
