Amazing Things Happen! 04/01/2021

Amazing Things Happen!

Our full name is Journey School for Uniquely Gifted and Talented. To us, this is more than a tag line or a sentimental saying. We believe from the bottom of our hearts that EVERY human is created with purpose and power. We believe in EVERY human’s ability to create, communicate, celebrate, and contribute to their community. And we believe in and support ALL of the different ways and forms communication exists. Our goal is never to speak “for” anyone else, but to come alongside and empower one another to use each of our own important voices.

And in the words of a mom of one of our students- “Being aware of something isn’t enough. Acceptance is better. Inclusion, immersion, and celebration of neurodiverse individuals is where we hope we all land.”

So today, on the first day of “Autism Awareness Month” we challenge you to listen to voices who are different from your own. To read resources and to move past awareness into identifying what full acceptance and celebration can look like in YOUR life. To see and love with a deeper and wider perspective. It's a journey, but we promise you its worth it. 💙

Amazing Things Happen! Introduction to autism that aims to raise awareness among young non-autistic audiences, to stimulate understanding and acceptance in future generations. Find...

We want each child to have the freedom to focus on their individual talents and gifts while learning all they need to thrive as empowered individuals .Statistics are not optimistic when it comes to looking at how differing abilities affect the family unit, but we want to be a part of changing that! We want to provide not only a family atmosphere for those waiting on forever homes but also help to empower parents and families to believe that MORE is possible! We see YOU. We hear YOU. We want to be on this Journey with you. When: School will run from August to May from 8:30am-3:30pm, Monday through Friday.
