Turing Pointe Autism Foundation
April first marks the kick off of the third annual “Test Drives for Autism” promotion from Toyota of Naperville. For every test drive that someone takes at Toyota of Naperville, we will donate $20 to the Turning Pointe Autism Foundation. Autism is being diagnosed with greater frequency than ever. A study released in 2012 has stated that as many as 1 in 88 children are affected by Autism. Autistic children often have issues with communicating with parents, siblings and friends. Children diagnosed with Autism face many more challenges and require a specialized learning environment with minimal distractions that allow them to focus and allow them the best chance to thrive.
The Turning Pointe Autism Foundation was started in 2005 with the express goal to provide children and their families with the educational opportunities and coping mechanisms that will benefit everyone involved. The Turning Pointe Day School that is run out of the Turning Pointe Autism Foundation tailors a program for each student based on his or her specialized needs. Turning Pointe Day Schools use the aptly named Turning Pointe COPES method that targets specific deficits for each child based on what will work best with them. COPES is a combination of applied behavior analysis, positive behavior supports, visual supports and individualized programs.
As an extension of the lessons learned and taught at the Day School, the Turning Pointe Career College was born. The Career College is an innovative program that teaches employment skills, work place safety and various specialized coping skills that go along with being in a work place. The Turning Pointe Career College was developed with input from many successful businesses including those on the Fortune 500 list. As a result of the careful planning and training, 100 percent of graduates from the Turning Pointe Career College have found gainful and meaningful employment.
Those interested in helping donate can browse through the inventory of new Toyota cars in Naperville and after choosing one can schedule a Naperville test drive or contact a Toyota of Naperville sales professional.
