Home Baked and Confectionary Goods Orientation
The Southwest Autism Research & Resource Center (SARRC) will offer training and support to individuals with autism spectrum disorders (ASD’s) to assist them on how to increase their earning potential through self-employment home-baked projects.
SARRC will use guidelines established by the Home Baked and Confectionary Goods Program through the Arizona Department of Health Services for the primary purpose of providing information and resources to individuals with ASD’s and their support team (family members, care givers, and others who support them). The program will provide instruction and supports on how to commercially sell their own home baked goods and confectionary items, with the intent of making them financially self sufficient.
The program will run in 2013 with the first 10 week session starting January to April 2013. The program will be broken into quarters, with the intent to train approximately 8 individuals per quarter. Individual and small group classes will be at the VLSA on Fridays 9:30am to 4:30pm. Home visits will also be required.
Partial funding was made available by the Arizona Developmental Disabilities Planning Council through contract No. ADDPC-FFY-12EM-00-Y1.
This free program will be open to enrolled SARRC clients age 18 or older who must commit to doing the work and have family support to do it. Because of this, the support team for the client (family members, care givers and others who support them) are encouraged to attend the orientation.
