Hello my name is Daniel and I’m going to be writing about fireworks safety. Never buy fireworks intended for professional displays because they carry a propellent that will ignite in certain conditions and are not for private use. Certain conditions will cancel displays like a risk of dry brush that might ignite due to fireworks or thunderstorms might also cancel fireworks displays. Supervise young children around fireworks or they could get hurt by the explosions. Certain types of fireworks are illegal under state law so only buy appropriate fireworks and use as directed on the package.
We were created for meaningful work, and one of life’s greatest pleasures is the satisfaction of a job well done.

At SEEDs for Autism, we create many opportunities for our participants to experience a sense of accomplishment, build self-esteem and achieve a feeling of satisfaction for a job well done. We asked our participants to share their thoughts on the things they’ve done at SEEDs that make them feel proud.
I made some earrings in jewelry at SEEDs that made me feel proud. It was very easy to do.
I have done and made so many things at Seeds, but to pick what makes me most proud is difficult. The things I make that I’m most proud of are stuff I make in the Wood Department. I love turning the wood, and Ed (instructor) says I’m very good at it.
In the Metal department I made metal ostriches with Lenny’s (instructor) help. It made me feel good because it took a good amount of time and effort finish the ostriches. It made me feel proud enough to finish them.
What I’ve been doing at SEEDS was that I improved a lot on my abilities to adapt to different situations in each class. Like when someone in my class is having a bad moment, I would ask staff if I could take a break to avoid getting involved. Or when I helped my peers by showing them what I do in one of my classes. I have become patient with everybody at SEEDS and helped out at the front desk. I have also learned how to manage my anger by taking breaks. Overall, SEEDS helped me improve on my behavior and this makes me proud.
Spa is my favorite department at Seeds. I’m good at making soap. It makes me feel proud.
Social Skills is my favorite department at Seeds. I’m good at listening. I’m good at communicating. It makes me feel proud.
Something I did at Seeds that made me feel proud was that I made a nice ceramic cactus soap dish and painted it well. It was nice and I felt good about it.
I am very interested in a apple computer the new Macbook air in gold. I want to download Shutterfly. Also, pictures of traveling because I like to travel a lot. I’m going to get a Kate Spade glitter cases in rose gold. I choose gold because it was cool looking.
Before I purchase it I will need to research everything about my laptop computer. Also, at apple I will need to take classes because I never had a Macbook air before.
Developing social skills is an important area of focus at SEEDs for Autism and we incorporate practicing these skills into every aspect of our program. Creating power point presentations is a creative way for our participants to build confidence, improve communication skills and inspire others. In this presentation, Hunter speaks to a roomful of his peers on the topic of “Manners”.
At SEEDs for Autism, our ongoing series of workshops provide new opportunities to empower our participants and encourage them to GROW. These talented young adults gain confidence interacting with the community as they assist our staff during these educational and inspirational events!
At SEEDs, participants learn by DOING, so Camille and Jeff created their own Vision Boards in preparation for this workshop. By experiencing the process themselves, Jeff and Camille became familiar with the different techniques and understood how each step led to the next. Through this experience, they gained confidence and looked forward to sharing their knowledge with the community. Jeff and Camille SHINED as they utilized their social skills – welcoming guests, using their words to encourage others and providing instruction to the workshop attendees.
“Jeff and Camille were very helpful and professional. This was a very organized event and I had a great time making my vision board!”
— Richard Bledsoe (Workshop attendee)
The event was a great success! Congratulations to Jeff and Camille on a job well done!
Workshop attendees and their beautiful Vision Boards!

Who he was-Thomas Edison was an inventor. He was born on Feb. 11, 1847. To middle class parents in the town of Milan, Ohio. He had adhd which meant he had a hyper active behavior which made his teachers upset and impatient. Thomas Edison never stopped asking questions and had a self centered view on life. He was deemed “odd” by his peers. He started his job as a newspaper salesman. He peddled out by the railroad track.
Three things Thomas Edison was famous for-
1.The first electric vote recording machine
He helped Benjamin Bredding make the first two way telephone.
He invented the first practical dictaphone
What are your thoughts about this person?
Edison was very smart and used his skills to create better items for the world. He had difficult beginnings and people didn’t always understand him but he persevered and never give up. I believe Thomas Edison is the most influential person that ever lived.
