Creating an inclusive Arts Community
Arts for Autism provides a variety of school readiness and life skills programs through the creative arts for the Autism community of South Florida.
These programs are for all ages from Early intervention, Adult services, parent resources, and Spectrum Dance Therapy classes.
Arts for Autism started off as a small business known as Spectrum Dance Therapy in 2013. Classes began in Miami Lakes at a therapy clinic and moved around to different studios from Miami-Dade County to Broward County. In 2014, Audrey Amadeo, the owner, decided it would be best to turn SDT into a non-profit organization. Once the Arts for Autism Foundation was established as a 501c3 donations began funding our scholarships. We were able to give out 1, then 3 then10 and now 30 scholarships every term.
In 2021, we partnered with the Town of Miami Lakes and began offering free SDT classes to the community. As our program grew in popularity more classes and programs were offered. In 2022, the Arts for Autism Academy began registering students for the weekly Day Programs providing Early Intervention and Adult services by combining the arts with academics and Applied Behavior Analysis.
