In this show we highlight opportunities for individuals on the autism spectrum to go from “Earning to Learning” through incredible programs such as Phoenix based, SEEDs for Autism and Southwest Autism Research & Research Center’s CulinaryWorks Program.  We will interview SEEDs for Autism founder Mary Ann LaRoche. Mary Ann is a metal artist who created SEEDs For Autism out of the sheer love and devotion for her younger autistic brother, Paul Robert Foti. Her program teaches diverse art skills in a user-friendly classroom setting.  Her students learn to produce functional and marketable products while learning important job related skills and having fun all at the same time.http://seedsforautism.org/

We will also interview Matthew Cottle and his mother Peg.  Matt is a graduate of the Entrepreneurial Center for Special Abilities (ECSA) program in Arizona.  After graduation, Matt went on to receive private baking lessons and have an internship with a local baking company. He recently opened his own bakery, Stuttering King Bakery.  Matt’s business, was accepted in the prestigious Seed Spot entrepreneurial program.

Matt makes delicious treats that are sold at the Beneficial Beans coffee shop. A wonderful opportunity place that is “Serving Up Success for Adults with Autism”
