About Us

Talented kids on the spectrum love music arts and are brilliant autistic children

Celebrating Brilliance

Children on the spectrum have beautiful gifts and talents. God made them special for a reason and what they lack in some areas such as socialization or development delays is made up for in other areas. While viewed by society as obsessions we prefer to use the term gifts in describing the talents of an ASD child. Autistic children are beautiful and brilliant in their own way whether it is through a music or artistic talent or brilliance in sharing statistics on an interest. Autism in Classrooms is all about celebrating brilliance by providing literature in classrooms throughout the United States.

Make a difference

Breaking through the misconceptions of Autism Spectrum Disorder and celebrating the brilliance of the minds of individuals diagnosed with ASD is our mission. We do this by placing books to read in classrooms throughout the United States. You can help serve our mission by nominating a classroom to receive children's books and you may also donate to schools on our waiting list. Your partnership will help those with Asperger's Syndrome and/or Autism be embraced by a more tolerant society.

"My Life with Gary"

Based on a true story written by a likable boy and his mother about his daily interactions impacted by his aspergers this children's book designed for grades 3-5 is a much needed read for ALL CHILDREN that will have an introduction with autism by providing an understanding and overall awareness. It is also very helpful for teachers, coaches, and family members to understand a very misunderstood disorder.
