Primitive Technology

 Most primitive tools were made out of either wood, stone, flint, bone, or obsidian. Stone tools helped early humans to gain the power of farming, mining and so much more. With mining came the Bronze Age and with it, new technology.

THE BRONZE AGE

By mixing tin and copper together, people created an alloy called bronze. It was stronger and more flexible than copper or gold and didn’t rust. With the creation of bronze though, man could now effectively wage war against each other.

When everybody had bronze weapons people realized that they needed something to protect themselves with, so they made armor, shields and polearms.

Animals of Africa

People on the autism spectrum often exhibit an intense focus on a particular area of interest. These affections may change over time, yet the level of enthusiasm remains the same. At SEEDs for Autism, we recognize that these passionate hobbies offer a level of comfort and stability to these unique individuals. From there, we can introduce new ideas and challenges to help our participants GROW. Daniel loves the animals of Africa, and during the creation of this blog post, he confidently stepped outside of his comfort zone. Apart from performing the technical skills of online research, typing, uploading images, adding categories and finding appropriate tags, Daniel opened his mind and imagined what he would say to these beloved animals.

Friendships Grow at SEEDs for Autism

 

Kyle, Jeff and Mallory share a smile during lunch break.

 

Friendship is born at that moment when one person says to another: ‘What! You too? I thought I was the only one.’
― C.S. Lewis

SEEDs for Autism is a non-profit organization that provides education and vocational training for young adults on the autism spectrum. Participants learn a variety of job skills, social skills and life skills in a structured environment focused on the arts. At SEEDs, these talented individuals produce a wide variety of high quality home and garden products which are sold into the community.

It sounds pretty amazing,
and it is…

But it’s so much more than that.

Truly, SEEDs is a life-changing program.

I have watched shyness turn into confidence.
I have seen meltdowns fade as coping skills develop.
I have seen distraction evolve into focus..
but, perhaps best of all –
I have seen these wonderful people find friends.
