Review for Kind Tree Productions, Inc., Eugene, OR, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

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.

Role:  Donor & I directed my nephew to this resource, to try to alleviate his loneliness, and I have purchased art that I like from much from the "Autism Art Walk" in Oregon. I've also contributed to the Autism Rocks summer camp experience for autistic people and their .
