About Us

Supporting Autism Management

The Florida Intercultural Academy - Center for Educational Partnerships, Inc offers innovative educational activities for children and young adults in the Caribbean and South Florida.  We work with all students but provide targeted support to programmes which improve the lives of children and young adults with Autism Spectrum Disorders.. Specifically, our organization supports research and development education programs in Animation as well as reducing the risks associated with Air Pollution on Autism.

Learning through Animation

Some children along the autism spectrum have shown an interest in animated films and relax when watching the cartoons. In addition children with autism in many cases have gone on to use animation and inspire others to lead fulfilling lives. FIA:CEP partners with organizations to develop a range of Animated programs, that can assist with learning development in all children, and particularly those along the Autism spectrum.

Energy Innovations in Education

We also develop and deliver clean energy educational programs in schools.

While the increasing prevalence of autism has generated great interest in the potential involvement of toxins in our environment, our organization agrees with Autism Speaks’ (2018) environmental research that concludes none of these influences appears to “cause” or “prevent” autism by themselves. Rather they appear to simply influence "risk" in those genetically predisposed to the disorder.


We support Solar Head of State's first ever Jamaica Solar Competition – a national competition for young people from across the country to learn more about the benefits of renewable energy
