Who are your students?
We work with youth through adults who struggle with social communication and understanding. We welcome students who are shy, learn differently, have autism and related conditions, and others who have challenges in their social arena. Many of our participants are college bound or headed to competitive employment. Our programs provide a safe and playful place to learn how to relate more effectively and understand the complex social world around them.
Where are you located?
We are located in hosted locations throughout metro Atlanta. Currently our programs are in Marietta, Smyrna, East Cobb, Roswell and Alpharetta. We also work through municipalities and organizations in service to the Autism community. We are partnered with GA Tech Excel program, and have worked with KSU's Academy and Fulton County Library System. We are a direct services provider for GA Vocational Rehabilitation. Additionally we work through school systems and private academies.
Do you accept waivers?
We accept NOW/COMP. We also accept 3rd party payers like InCommunity, Bobby Dodd Foundation, Easter Seals Champions for Children, and are willing to work with others. We are a direct services provider for Georgia Vocational Rehabilitation Agencies, and serve their clients in a growing number of venues.
Are there eligibility requirements?
Our mission is to work with those who are growing toward greater independence following their K-12 career. Our participants are able to enjoy our classes with minimal assistance. Shenanigans welcomes individuals who are mildly to moderately affected by autism or compatible conditions with similar social understanding components. We encourage prospective participants to try out a Shenanigans class before commiting to ongoing classes to see if this activity is a fit for their needs.
Our transitions program Code Breakers is for highly motivated young adults with language skills strong enough to participate in discussions that develop critical thinking and self-advocacy skills. Prospective participants may have a short informal screening conversation to determine eligibility.
