April 29th 2016: Students & Teachers celebrated the last day of Autism Awareness Month. They painted kites (an environmentally friendly option) the color blue along with the Autism symbol and flew them. They also held other various activities for that particular day.
Blairwood Academy is designed to serve 2 -18 year old students who learn best when given individualized attention in a small school environment. Blairwood Academy strives daily to help cure Illiteracy in this country.
To our benefit, we have the best science based practices to “unlock the code” for students who simply learn differently. Many of our students continue on to colleges, become artists, teachers for children with Autism and other productive members of our society.
We also service children with Autism and developmental delays that have the potential to work and function in our community.

What is Lupus?
Lupus is a chronic, autoimmune disease that can damage any part of the body (skin, joints, and/or organs inside the body). Chronic means that the signs and symptoms tend to last longer than six weeks and often for many years.
In lupus, something goes wrong with your immune system, which is the part of the body that fights off viruses, bacteria, and germs ("foreign invaders," like the flu). Normally our immune system produces proteins called antibodies that protect the body from these invaders. Autoimmune means your immune system cannot tell the difference between these foreign invaders and your body’s healthy tissues ("auto" means "self") and creates autoantibodies that attack and destroy healthy tissue. These autoantibodies cause inflammation, pain, and damage in various parts of the body.
Lupus is also a disease of flares (the symptoms worsen and you feel ill) and remissions (the symptoms improve and you feel better).
