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

Independent Learning

We teach real coding!

No experience needed!

Licensed Teachers

Flexible scheduling

Multiple locations!

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!

Our Program

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! 

Coding Languages

We teach the core coding languages which include HTML, Java, JavaScript and Python. All within our custom and student friendly learning centres!

Individual Learning 

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!

Student Success

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.

After The Intro Class

The Junior Coder Program is our main pathway that students would move to once enrolled in our weekly sessions. Every student works at their own pace and as they progress, they will receive an all-around education in the fundamentals of Coding.  This includes HTML, Java, JavaScript and Python which leads into App Building, Game Creation, Websites and opens the door to Virtual Reality!

Coding Benefits

Better Grades in School Through Coding!

Improves Persistence

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.
