Kind Tree Prodpuctions, also known as "Autism Rocks" is a remarkable group of supportive professionals reaching out to high functioning autistic young adults. The support group has cut through the loneliness so many youg adults experience, and the peer discussions of social and workk-related problems is comforting and constructive. It's nice not to be alone! The group also offers Social Skills classes, which are great ways to develop tools that would otherwise be incomprehensible. They practice reacting to different situations, they talk about unspoken ways that non-autistic people interact, something that is hard for autistic folks to understand. The Social Skills classes also involve planning outings as a group, fun ways to interact in a safe, interesting social environment in "the outside world." My nephew has found happiness, friendship, structure, and self-awareness through Autism Rocks. He likes the people and the activities, the play-acting, and the discussions. A lot.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

My nephew has found friends with similar interests, has been able to communicate with his young adult peers, and enjoys applying lessons he is learning and sharing with others. The group gives him a sense of community and common intersts and concerns. He feels that he "belongs" and is very empowered by the Kindtree Autism Rocks team.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

I would like the organization to have funds to rent a center for people to gather and to use as their own facility. I'd also like them to have funds to continue funding the excellent level of (now volunteer) facilitators and social skills leadership that help out.
