The mission of Bittersweet, Inc. is to positively impact the lives of individuals with autism and those whose lives they touch.

The first farm model for adults with autism was established at Somerset Court in England in 1974. Bittersweet Farms was the first of its kind in the United States.

You may be wondering: What is unique or special about serving adults with autism on eighty acres of fields, gardens, and woods in a rural area of northwest Ohio?
Over the years, we have found that a farm setting offers rich, varied, and abundant opportunities for self-paced, distraction-free activities that are perceived as immediately meaningful by our participants. They are able to see the process of their work and are able to enjoy the product of their labor. This concrete reinforcement is a positive affirmation of their dignity and worth. 

Farming provides an opportunity for reciprocal partnership and community. It is a bucolic, secure, and safe environment in which individuals with challenging behaviors and limited social and communication skills can grow and develop to their fullest potential. All of our activities are designed to meet the wide range and abilities of persons from the entire spectrum of Autism Disorders. Such activities include:  

     agriculture (including planting and harvesting)
·    horticulture (including greenhouse operations)
·    fencing & landscaping, construction, repair & maintenance
·    produce collection & marketing
·    animal feeding & care
·    craft-making & woodworking

Those who live here develop a sense of husbandry, accomplishment, and ownership. It is their home. By happy coincidence, many of these same wholesome and holistic activities prove to be of great therapeutic value and contribute strongly to vocational training.

Bittersweet, Inc., is active in four major areas: residential, supported living, vocational services and specialized services. Work undertaken by our staff, board of directors and foundation board is guided by our mission statement and philosophy. Information about our people, their mission and vision is available on our website.

The Brain Balance Program is a non-medical and drug-free approach to overcoming the challenges of ADHD, learning disabilities, processing disorders, Asperger's syndrome, and a host of other related childhood learning and developmental issues. Our integrated approach combines physical and sensory motor exercises with academic skill training and healthy nutrition. The Brain Balance Program serves kids ages 4-17.

The Brain Balance Personalized Assessment is an objective and quantifiable measurement of each area of function - motor, sensory, behavioral, social, emotional, and academic - allowing us to better understand your child's unique challenges. Based on the results of your child's Personalized Assessment, we create a program tailored specifically to your child's unique needs. Each child's program includes sensory motor training and stimulation, and academic activity plans coupled with easy-to-follow dietary guidelines.

The carefully structured and coordinated combination of the program elements helps establish proper brain and body function leading to a reduction or elimination of negative symptoms and behaviors, and improves the ability to learn academically, socially and emotionally.​

The Building Blocks for Kids’ mission is to improve the quality of life for children with health-related needs that are not being met due to a lack of insurance, government funding, and/or family resources. We assist our families by finding alternative resources for them and/or by providing financial assistance for the need. However, even when funds are scarce, the fact that we continually try to find resources for our families gives them hope that there is still someone out there trying to help them after so many doors have been closed in their face.
