“Life is about process, evolving. Perfection is a static place, which is the antithesis of evolution. Have no fear of perfection, you’ll never reach it.”

LEGO Club allows children on the Autism Spectrum to develop such skills as; social interaction, collaborating, problem solving, compromising, negotiating, turn taking and so much more. Therapeutic Book Clubs are a great way to get reluctant children and adolescents to open up to peers in a risk free environment. We focus on a current book with a social emotional slant and discuss as a group. They develop skills such as; social Interaction, turn taking, active listening, and peer relationships.
Jamie believes that relationships are the key to thriving. Helping children, adolescents and adults learn to be happy, safe, and comfortable is an invaluable social skill that she likes to teach early on through expected and unexpected behaviors. Building strong interpersonal skills will lead to greater ease in social situations as well as conflict resolution.
