In relation to our previous post about why more Cybersecurity centers should hire people with Autism Spectrum Disorder, we wanted to inform you of some great kids resources in our local Virginia area.
In Fairfax, Virginia, Ninja Warriors is an up and coming resource for the community! Upon opening, Code Ninjas Camps will offer an immersive environment for kids to explore and develop new skills to become potential digital gurus as well as have fun with friends. They will soon offer after-school programs as well as summer camps! For more info click here.
Generation Code’s mission is to transform kids into digital leaders, and they serve individuals through Lab and summer camps. They also serve schools and communities using innovative curriculum and professional development.
Their programs include Mobile App Development (11+), Ozo Robotics, Scratch animation and Game design, Intro to Java Script, and more!

Not Near You?
If neither of these is near you, it could still be a great resource to consider looking into. Considering the need in the IT and Cybersecurity profession, this could be a great activity for your child to attempt.
The Tech world has the potential to be a great professional endeavor for someone with Autism Spectrum Disorder. We hope you find these ideas helpful.
