The CODE Initiative

The C.O.D.E. Initiative is hosting computer programming workshops for youth (ages 8-15) with ASD in January 2019. 

We are a non-profit organization with the goal to provide opportunities for children with ASD to get interested and learn the basics of computer coding! We encourage our students to be creative in our supportive environment where we offer a one-on-one student to teacher ratio where students can learn at their own comfortable pace. We host numerous workshops throughout the year and our upcoming ones are happening in January!
