The students at Riviera Preparatory School held a special Valentine’s Day party for the Carrie Brazer Center for Autism on Friday, Feb. 14, at the Prep Campus.
Riviera Prep infuses Service Learning into its rigorous and diverse curriculum; this event was designated as a school wide day of service. More than 100 of Riviera’s middle and high school students initiated and planned the events. The festivities included a musical performance, art projects, and sports related activities during which students from both schools formed new friendships and new understandings.
The Carrie Brazer Center for Autism has served children diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorders and other social and communicative disabilities, from pre-school to adulthood, since 1999. The center provides a full day, 12-month program for students.
With a multidisciplinary team of professionals, including behavioral, music, speech and occupational therapists and Certified Special Education teachers, the Carrie Brazer Center for Autism provides a wide range of learning opportunities that foster growth in all of the essential areas.
The center has two locations in Miami- Dade County. The Elementary Campus is located at 8790 SW 94 St. The Middle School, High School and Adult Vocational School, located at 16905 SW 100 Ave., provides the students with necessary life skills and vocational skills to enhance their ability to live and work more independently. It’s important to note that Florida McKay Scholarships for students with disabilities are accepted at both locations as full tuition for students whose Matrix score is 254 or 255 (based on a sliding fee scale).
