Autism Awareness Day: The Spectrum Academy

In 2016, The Spectrum Academy in Jackson, Mississippi, opened their doors. As an offshoot of New Summit School, Spectrum Academy seeks to provide individual attention and development to Mississippi children living with autism and other developmental delays.

The staff of The Spectrum Academy invited the JT Show to take a tour, and it was an incredible place to see.

As part of Autism Awareness Day, we’re devoting all three hours of the JT Show today to raising awareness for The Spectrum Academy and New Summit School. We visited with program director Brittany Bell who showed us around their phenomenal facility.

We also got to tour the cafeteria at New Summit School and visit with Tyler. He’s a graduate of the school who’s pursuing a degree and a career in culinary arts. Part of the mission of New Summit School and The Spectrum Academy is to provide workforce training to their students in order to prepare them for independence.
