A few words from our founder.

I know I can’t change the world but I want to offer something, even though it may be small and from a humble place. In these challenging times, the most important step we can take is to act from a place of love, kindness and connection.

The Power Of Positive Discipline.

The Carrie Brazer Center for Autism is a proud “Positive Discipline School” and one of the only in Florida for students on the Autism Spectrum. The Positive Discipline approach teaches children, teachers, staff and parents

to be encouraging to each other and to themselves. It is a whole school model designed to teach everyone in the school to have a role that creates a sense of belonging and significance. Every relationship is nurturing and deeply respectful. The environment is inviting and teaches everyone to be responsible, respectful and resourceful members of their school family.

 

Imagine a school

 

♥     Where children can’t wait to come each day.

♥     Where teachers and children give hugs every day.

♥     Where parents feel safe dropping their children off because they know their child will be respected and loved the entire day long.

♥     Where the entire staff is happy and loves their job

and you see it on their faces every day.

♥     Where the students feel comfortable to make mistakes and to blossom and grow into independent and happy individuals.

♥ Where the parents feel like a part of an extended family and have the desire to learn the skills they need to become effective parents.

♥     Where the children respect each other, speak kind words and demonstrate empathy through acts of kindness, especially to those less fortunate than they are.

♥     Where students are engaged and parents are contributing to the classroom, to the school and to the larger community.

The Positive Discipline model was created by Dr. Jane Nelsen and Lynn Lott and derived from the works of psychologists Alfred Adler and Rudolph Dreikurs. Positive Discipline is based on mutually respectful relationships at home, at school and in the community. Positive Discipline teaches parents, educators, students and community members the skills necessary to create healthy interpersonal connections in an environment where each contribution has meaning, is valued, and expected.
