Exceptional Minds creates brilliant futures in animation and visual arts

It’s been a dream of Dr. Day for Seth to have a meaningful career in graphic design ever since she saw his interest in the field. He showed his creativity by designing the original Seth’s Mom logo. A premier disabled adult resource is a special education school in California that is taking the creativity of adults with ASD (autism spectrum disorder) and turning it into Hollywood style productions.

Adults with ASD special education and career training

According to the Exceptional Minds website

Exceptional Minds LogoExceptional Minds (EM) is a nonprofit vocational school and working studio that prepares young adults on the autism spectrum for careers in digital animation and visual effects. The first and only school of its kind, EM is a dynamic answer to the high unemployment and social isolation characteristic of today’s young adults with ASD as they age out of the public school system. We provide customized instruction in visual effects, digital animation and work readiness to prepare this underserved population for lifelong careers. Our full-time, three-year vocational program offers a crucial bridge between high school and meaningful employment by building on the strengths of these individuals. EM also offers private tutoring, small group instruction, and summer workshops for teens with autism interested in exploring careers in the digital arts.

No longer are we living in an age where being diagnosed with a disability automatically means low pay, manual labor jobs. Dreams have become a reality as education, training, and career options expand.
