Our Story

We are a family owned and operated artisan chocolate company. It was started by Valerie for her son, Blake, who is a young man with autism in 2013. We started with one young man and now are have over 12 differently-abled individuals in our program. Our purpose is to offer delicious chocolate confections while also helping individuals with special needs. We accomplish this two ways:  By providing individuals with developmental disabilities training and by providing employment opportunities in some circumstances. In addition to training, each participant has the opportunity to engage in meaningful and purposeful experiences with an emphasis on social interaction. 

On behalf of our family and individuals with autism everywhere, thank you in advance for shopping at The Chocolate Spectrum! http://shop.thechocolatespectrum.com/
