Helping Children with Autism
Supporting Important Therapeutic interventions
Since the creation of the festival, it has always been our goal to help provide better services for children living with autism in Utah. We are proud to partner with Spectrum Academy in making this happen.
Chalk the Block™ is proud to partner with Spectrum Academy in Pleasant Grove. In addition to bringing much needed attention to the growing rates of autism in our community, all of the proceeds from the festival will be donated to make sure that children with autism receive the
academic, social and therapeutic resources critical to their future success.
WHAT IS SPECTRUM ACADEMY?
Spectrum Academy is the premier charter school in Utah for students with high-functioning autism, Asperger’s Syndrome, and others who would benefit from our unique learning environment. They provide small class sizes, with individualized instruction and innovative social skills curriculum. Thanks to teachers who are highly-qualified with dual certification and training in social-cognitive deficits, Spectrum is able to offer an academic
environment where children with autism can enjoy opportunities in technology, arts, recreation, and vocational skills.
