What SEEDS means to me

What Seeds means to me

2/16: At the time of writing this I have been working at SEEDS FOR AUTISM for over a year. During this time I’ve come out of my shell a lot. In High School I was always the quiet person in class that wouldn’t talk anyone and no one would even try to talk to me. I did have a couple of friends from Middle and Elementary school that I would hang out with at lunch and on the bus, but we didn’t have any classes together. I secretly felt kind of lonely but was to afraid to actually talk to new people. After I graduated, my family took me to a job/program/school fair where SEEDS had a booth. It seemed interesting, so that summer I signed up for the summer program -and it was a lot of fun. I met some nice people who I became acquaintances with, but I still didn’t feel at home/comfortable yet. Then in December, I joined the official SEEDs program. I was still pretty nervous, until someone who also works at SEEDS said he remembered me from the summer program and welcomed me into the SEEDS family. I felt bad because I didn’t remember him.  After a while though we became good friends and still are. I started talking about similar interests, things that are on my mind, how life is going, and now I have many new friends! Now I feel like I can make friends, share what I have to say, and I am slightly more confident. I am now truly part of the SEEDS family!

5/25: Today I am leaving SEEDS, I still feel the same as I did when I wrote the paragraph above. I am leaving because SEEDS has given me confidence to follow a new opportunity. I will miss all of my friends and all of my instructors very much, but it’s time to move forward with my life, and SEEDS FOR AUTISM has given me the knowledge to do so successfully. I have learned skills and made things here that I never thought I would ever be able to. I am very grateful for SEEDS FOR AUTISM and everyone here for helping me with so much. The only thing I can say now is, thank you!

The Flash Season 3 Episode 17 (Duet) review

                                                     By  J.L. Wolf

The episode itself is amazing. It takes place in a 1920’s version of Central city and modern day 2017 central city. It is a great balance of action and song. Darren Criss plays Music Meister, a guy who at first comes off as an odd ball and bit of an antagonist. He puts Barry Allen aka the Flash into a coma like state and he wakes up in a musical. Melissa Benoist sings “Moon River” from Breakfast at Tiffany’s.  The Next song that pops up is “Put a little love in your heart” performed by Carlos Valdes, John Barrowman, Jeremy Jordan, Darren Criss and more. I might have missed them pull off one the best scenes I have seen so far in The Flash and Supergirl. It left me feeling a lot of joy. I would love to see more Episodes like this. The fourth song that appears is “More I Cannot Wish You” sung by Jesse L. Martin, Victor Garber, and John Barrowmen. By the end of the episode it was revealed that Music Meister only did what he did to fix 2 broken hearts. So, to me he is the guy that has a song in his heart. The Music Meister pops up where and whenever he is needed to help others like Barry and Kara as they both had hearts that were hurting. The last song was called “Running home to you” sung by Grant Gustin. All in all the cast looked like they had lot of fun, and I can’t wait see what they do next!

Moon River

Put a little love in your heart.

I’m your Super friend

More I Cannot Wish You

Running home to you

Changing Lives at SEEDs for Autism

Support and GROW the life of an adult with autism!

Help SEEDs for Autism reach our goal to employ 15 participants in the next 12 months.

SEEDs for Autism is a Phoenix based vocational training program dedicated to teaching adults with autism a multitude of job skills related to the arts. As a non-profit organization we need your help to support this life changing program.

While enrolled in the public school system, there are a lot of resources available to help children affected by autism. But what happens when these children grow up? So many are capable, yet for 85% of this population, being an adult with autism means a lifetime of isolation; a dark and lonely future with no real direction or sense of purpose.

Seeds for Autism has created a solution. SEEDs provides real life practical experiences to help participants obtain job, life and social skills while being productive in a workplace environment.  Participants learn how to use real tools of the trade to produce over 150 high quality home and garden items which are sold into the community.
