Students on the autism spectrum and other related diagnoses are gearing up for a big day. They’re presenting their history, art and science projects Friday in a fair at The Children’s Home of Cincinnati’s Heidt Center of Excellence.
The center serves middle and high school-aged students with autism spectrum and related diagnoses, as well as young adults transitioning to independent living.
“The Heidt Center presumes competence from our students and provides them supports to thrive in an academic and life-skills environment,” says Amanda Tipkemper, education and autism services director/principal at the Heidt Center in a statement. “Many would be surprised at the creative and analytical abilities our students have and these projects showcase their talents.”
