April is Autism Awareness Month

The Puzzle Piece is a symbol that reflects the mystery and complexity of Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). Since every puzzle piece is different in some way, a puzzle piece accurately represents the diversity of the individuals affected by Autism.

Near and Dear to the Hearts of our CONNOILS’ Family are the young adults who are enrolled at the Wisconsin Independent Learning College in Waukesha, Wisconsin.

WILC believes that knowledge is power. They understand that specially trained staff with the heart and vision of their mission is essential to the success of the program. They strive to provide an environment that inspires creativity, encourages individuality and supports young adults affected by Autism to feel safe and free to express their thoughts, feelings, and opinions and ultimately realize their dreams. WILC Staff understands that each person is unique and will require individualized programming to achieve their highest level of independent functioning.

WILC provides integrated, personalize training and therapy programs within a campus-life community that teaches, trains, and coaches through an innovative multi-modality approach. The programs include:

  • Academic Instruction individually and in groups
  • Nutrition and Healthy Food Choices
  • Finances and Budgeting
  • Social Cues
  • Pre-Vocational and Vocational Skills
  • Music Therapy
  • Out and About in the Community
  • Free Time and Leisure Skills
  • Stress Management
  • Fitness and Exercise
  • Art Therapy
  • Yoga

We are happy and enthusiastic about partnering, working, and supporting the students at Wisconsin Independent Learning College. We love that we can provide work experience opportunities for individuals with disabilities!
