Islands of Brilliance (IOB) is a nonprofit organization that provides unique learning and social engagement opportunities (both virtually and in-person) for neurodiverse students through a person-centered approach that allows individual interests and capabilities to flourish. Our programming, rooted in art, design and STEM-based curriculum, helps children and young adults on the autism spectrum learn valuable technical skills, while practicing critical social and emotional learning competencies in a supported environment. Our education team partners with parents, educators and support agencies to identify the appropriate programming mix to meet each students’ needs and goals.
From foundational workshops featuring 1:1 mentorship for students beginning at age 8 and work-based transition opportunities through our more rigorous Digital Academy program to weekly video chats that lean into specific topics of interest or the practical life skills needed to foster independence, we offer a robust menu of programs that help build the technical and social skills needed to thrive, whether it be in the workplace or actively engaged in the community.
Our programming runs throughout the week starting at 3:30pm CST and Saturday mornings – with noon workshops available during the summer! We are excited to announce that we will be bringing our unique programming more conveniently to the homeschool community in the 2022-2023 school year with virtual groups during the school day! Connect with us today to start your child’s creative journey at Islands and secure a spot in our homeschool Sandbox groups in the fall!
