Come join us for Reading Rocket Discovery Challenge. Let's get out of our comfort zone and discover more, move more, lean more, and have fun!

This is a free, non-therapeutic social gathering “Therapy Groups". The primary members are individuals with Autism considered high-functioning and at least 7-10yrs.

Our "WHO"listic BOOK CLUB welcomes parents to participate. The group meets during an hour to build reading skills. This program is mobile and interactive (working with books of their own choice), while learning social interactive skills.

The Book Club is all about children that love to read (including some who cannot read), love books for the same reasons most people do...ADVENTURE! Being transported to different worlds, cultures, etc., where they meet interesting characters and learn about exciting new things. Taking that journey with a group of "Like Minded" friends makes it even more delightful and fun.

Auttie world's Holistic Art is just one component that integrates into our year round Food and Nutrition Program.

We have a "Mobile Holistic Food Art and Sustainability Program" that is a concept for a healthier organic initiative, contributing in the knowledge of Holistic Nutrition and Lifestyle.

We travel to TN, IN, KY doing presentations at community centers providing knowledge, awareness, and understanding within social, moral, spiritual and cultural frameworks. This empowers children to take their own little steps towards a sustainable future.

This form of art raises the awareness of our planets ecological system. By utilizing organic produce and recycling "Mother Earth" to bring about a wonderful masterpiece. Allows a child to produce a work of "ART".

For ex:
We use a kit containing the following materials to create one mobile-
tissue paper, cardboard, orange skins, sticky dots, and string. Or we utilize produce, materials, etc., to create a wonderful edible delight.
