Coding For Kids
With Autism Spectrum Disorder!
We started teaching kids coding and programming in 2018 and have been pleasantly surprised to see the success of some of our students with ASD and how they have flourished within our programs!
Our Program Basics
We teach real coding!
No experience needed!
Our programs start with the basics and allow each student to work through the curriculum at their own pace. This removes the pressure and rigid structure related to learning for all students! We feel that this has contributed to the success of many of our ASD students!
Moving forward into 2020, our team has made it a priority to expose and enrol more students with ASD to our program. To simplify this for parents, we will be hosting multiple intro to coding sessions for ASD students to try us out! We will ensure that the facilities are staffed accordingly and parents are invited to stay and see how their kids progress!
Students will Learn
Your Child will learn the fundamentals of Coding which leads into App Building, Game Creation, Web Development and opens the door to Virtual Reality!
Our students all learn at their own pace and our classes are designed to best serve their individual needs. We support their learning based on their abilities!
In our experience, we have seen greatest success with students:
We use the "Spectrum Severity Scale" only for reference. Ultimately, we invite parents to bring their kids out and we'll see how they do with our sessions! We'll have a conversation about your child before their session, more than likely during and also after.

Better Grades in School Through Coding!
Coding teaches the valuable skill of persistence in the face of difficult challenges. Learning how to problem solve through trial and error builds this highly desirable skill and teaches the students to continue looking for solutions.
Improves Math and Writing Skills
Coding helps children visualize abstract concepts, lets them apply math to real situations and makes math fun and creative. For writing, kids who code understand the value of concision and planning, which results in better writing skills.
Learn the Power of Collaboration
Kids meet and learn how to collaborate with all kinds of peers, all joined by a common interest in technology. Classrooms and other in-person environments bring kids together for face-to-face collaboration.
Improves Critical Thinking
When working on solving a problem, trying to get the computer to do something, kids are learning to look past the bigger picture and breakdown the problem into smaller, manageable tasks. These skills are useful in everyday life.
