Help us bring unity to our communities...
Light Up the Spectrum Inclusion Center is a place where ALL individuals of ALL abilities can come together and create meaningful relationships. A platform created to nurture not only the individuals but their families as well. We believe that an everyday life is not only obtainable but our priority.
For years, individuals diagnosed with Developmental Disabilities and Autism have been conditioned and struggle to "fit in" or "integrate" into a community. Neurodiverse individuals prescribed medications to fit a mold in a world of human conditioning. Our Seniors diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease placed in nursing homes with minimal social interaction and little to no person centered planning... Until now!!!
We are creating a Community Center everyone will enjoy. Incorporating stimulation to ALL 5 senses to enrich and enhance the lives of our individuals. Providing educational tools, professional consultations, holistic outlets for mental and physical health. Implementing mindfulness to promote overall well being of mind, body and soul.
We have created a facility of inclusion that will allow individuals (with or without special needs) a place to thrive and flourish into their full potential; in a safe and nurturing environment. When I think about integration, I think of integrating Energy Healing, Reiki, Holistic Alternatives, Mindfulness Sound Healing and Aromatherapy.
Within the Inclusion Center, our sensory gym incorporates tactile, proprioceptive, vestibular equipment and activities. The LED Light Room includes auditory processing and visual development with sight and sound.
Our individuals participating in our 1 on 1 program will also receive a structured personalized individual centered plan. Incorporating not only goals, likes and interests within those plans, we’ll bring in large swirls of creativity, big splashes of imagination and possibilities that are endless.
Weather brushing up or learning new skills, we have something for everyone! Personalized Programs, Social Clubs, activities and community events will allow our individuals to work on things such as Kitchen safety/meal prep, socialization and a variety of skills needed to live an everyday life. We create a one of a kind program that will lead to the magickal journey and discovery of inner peace.
We know it takes a village to raise a child...
-Let's create a welcoming village of acceptance, kindness, compassion and most importantly LOVE!
Within the center, our individuals will have the opportunity to utilize multiple room’s designated for various activities to promote a more versatile and inclusive environment.
