After School

The After School Program provides an array of enrichment activities designed to challenge our students to reach beyond the scope of classroom learning.

Students choose from a variety of activities, clubs or classes – each designed to teach new skills, enhance current skills, or foster development of new hobbies and interests.

Our staff or community volunteers lead a variety of clubs and activities including:

  • Basketball
  • Body Jams
  • Fishing Club
  • Gardening Club
  • Ice Skating
  • Jolly Dancers
  • Nail Club
  • Painting Club
  • Roller Skating
  • Snow Shoeing
  • Teen Night
  • Wellness Class
  • Working Program/Building
  • Yoga

Special Activities

Beyond the daily programs Anderson Center staff also provides new and innovative opportunities and life experiences, just like any family. These are not necessarily considered a program or a service but these special activities certainly give Anderson Center’s children and adults the chance to engage, learn, play and live life more fully.

Fabulous is one word that sums up my experience at Anderson Center for Autism. I travel to two to three cities per week so I have a good sense of autism services and I’d be hard pressed to think of a center that is more comprehensive or dedicated. I am very impressed by the passion shared by Neil Pollack and the Executive Team – and the faculty is tremendous. Their creativity and vision is so evident and it manifests itself in the Center delivering what’s best for all involved. From children to adults, there’s a place for everyone at ACA.
