​​We are presently starting 2 new training programs at The Chocolate Spectrum and expanding our present Chocolatier Training Program


In March, thanks to a grant we have received from Autism License Plate (please support http://www.autismlicenseplate.com/), we are launching our NEW Barista and Front of the House Training Course. This is a weekly course for 12 weeks for those who have autism or other developmental disability and 18 years of age and over. It is designed for those who are contemplating a job or career in coffee, café, or restaurant front of the house (like in a fast food restaurant). The curriculum includes Barista (coffee beverage making), interaction skills with the public such as in a café or fast food restaurant, and job social skills. It is a structured course that includes workbooks, videos, direct instruction and practice. The fee for each participant is $120 for the 12 week course. If you have interest in this course, please contact Valerie Herskowitz at valerie@thechocolatespectrum.com


Our other new training program is our Differently-Abled High School weekly chocolate and pastry class. It will be starting in March on Tuesdays from 4:00-5:30PM. It is an ongoing class and includes baking and chocolate training, job skill training, and social skill development. Tuition is $25 per class and is paid at the beginning of each month.
