When you purchase an item from SEEDs for Autism, you are not just getting a hand-crafted, high quality product- you are investing in the lives of our participants! In addition to teaching job skills, life skills and social skills, our unique program also gives young adults on the autism spectrum a sense of purpose, a feeling of accomplishment and a boost of self-confidence knowing they are a valuable part of our team. SEEDs participants pour a lot of love, skill and hand work into every item they create. We asked a group of these talented young adults to share their thoughts on how it feels when someone buys one of the products they made.
