Monarch Center for Autism Cleveland Ohio

Club M

Small_Club_M_logo_FinalAt Monarch Center for Autism, we have more than ten years of experience offering children on the autism spectrum opportunities to participate in extracurricular activities with typical peers, supported by special accommodations that promote learning, fun and success in a safe and positive environment.

We are thrilled to launch Monarch's "Club M," which delivers our most popular classes and events on a seasonal basis. Membership is free and automatically assigned when someone registers for a class.


Our state-of-the-art facility is designed to appease the sensory needs of children on the autism spectrum. A soft color palette, gentle up-lighting, extra sound proofing, odorless paint and carpet, special sensory rooms, and an abudance of natural sunlight, contribute to the calming environment.

At Monarch, we believe the most effective way to teach children on the autism spectrum is to combine explicit language instruction with visual supports. Classes vary by season, but typically include the following themes:

  • Art Therapy
  • Social Skills (Legos)
  • Drama

  • Occasionally Monarch hosts events for individuals with Autism Spectrum Disorders and their families (caregivers, siblings, extended family and friends), which promote creativity, social skills, positive learning, sensory integration, and family fun. Sample events include "Hands on Pottery," "Puppet Making" and "Kite Making."



  • Professionally trained specialists including art therapists, intervention specialists, speech/language pathologists, associate teachers, and others from Monarch School facilitate all activities. Not only do they have tremendous experience working with children on the autism spectrum, but they are energetic, enthusiastic and compassionate. The number of facilitators varies depending on the activity.



  • Participants are grouped by age for most activities, and age ranges vary by activity. Intake procedures are required for new child participants. Minimum enrollment is required for all activities. Parents/caregivers must remain in the building for all activities.
