Westonwood Ranch offers a unique learning curriculum to improve life skills and pre-vocational skills to young adults with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). Program participants will have the opportunity to engage in a variety of learning experiences. Similar to a college model, the participants will have direct input into their unique learning curriculum by selecting from and participating in an array of diverse “life classes.” The ideal result of this program is gainful employment in the community. Activities include aquaponic greenhouse operations, marketing and sales of organic produce, landscape gardening, ranch maintenance, therapeutic equine activities, animal feeding and care, animal-assisted therapy via animal rescues residing and being cared for on the ranch, creative arts, and life skills/self-care/fitness/wellness initiatives. Westonwood also offers a Summer Enrichment Program—an experience created for individuals ages six to eighteen with autism. It focuses on the use of agriculture to promote individual growth via social, physical, and cognitive stimulation.
