The Chocolate Spectrum Cafe and Academy Trains Teaches Job Skills to Individuals with Autism While Making Delicious Chocolate

Nava Silton

Just in case you needed another reason to eat chocolate, The Chocolate Spectrum, in Jupiter, Florida makes delicious, gourmet chocolate while teaching job skills to individuals with autism. The Chocolate Spectrum was started by Valerie Herskowiz in 2013 and became a brick and mortar shop in 2016. The original purpose of the shop was to employ individuals with autism and other developmental disorders. Making people happy with irresistible chocolate and providing fun chocolate making classes, was just an outlet of achieving this goal. After the vast success of The Chocolate Spectrum, Valerie realized she had the opportunity to do more than employ individuals with developmental disorders, she could be an inspiration for future autism entrepreneurs. For this reason she started a blog to chronicle her journey as a business woman. She has vowed to post one blog each week as long as she has readers.
