  • We are dedicated to providing a healthy, creative environment that appeals to the individual attributes of students.
  • We believe through the arts and humanities,the youth of today can acquire the identity and self-awareness essential for success.
  • We believe that the essence of humanity is captured through the arts in a manner that may facilitate personal growth.
  • We believe that through positive enforcement as well as acknowledging individual attributes helps to establish the development of teen self-esteem.
  • We believe that by providing an accessible outlet to channel adolescent energy and creativity, teens can acquire a sense of self-worth and expression struggling less through issues of self-doubt and lack of focus.
  • We believe that expression is essential to the development of the individual, providing insight to their goals and a way in which to achieve them. Our goal is to facilitate these things in an effort to aid youth in their path to wisdom, knowledge and understanding.
  • We intend to build a curriculum that lays the foundation for dreams to be fulfilled.

    About NAAR and Autism Speaks

    On February 1, 2006, NAAR and Autism Speaks joined forces in the fight against autism. Both founding families share one vision, one goal: to change the future for all who struggle with autism spectrum disorders.

    We are dedicated to funding global biomedical research into the causes, prevention, treatments, and cure for autism; to raising public awareness about autism and its effects on individuals, families, and society; and to bringing hope to all who deal with the hardships of this disorder. We are committed to raising the funds necessary to support these goals.

    Autism Speaks aims to bring the autism community together as one strong voice to urge the government and private sector to listen to our concerns and take action to address this urgent global health crisis. It is our firm belief that, working together, we will find the missing pieces of the puzzle.

    To get informed or get involved, visit www.autismspeaks.org.

    Autism Speaks. It's time to listen.


    All proceeds from the royalties from Boogiericanism will go to Autismspeaks.org
