Let's Make Learning FUN!

"The cost per year to raise a child with an intellectual disability is almost twice the cost of raising a child without intellectual disability" (Autism Speaks).
It's time to change this narrative. The mission of FUNctional EDventures is to provide the highest quality academic and social enrichment programs to our young, neurounique people from ALL socioeconomic backgrounds.

We are committed to providing fun, engaging activities and growth opportunities that are based on positive interactions. We view our responsibility as extending far beyond the mere teaching of academic and social skills and wholeheartedly advocate for the right of all individuals to participate and belong to our community.

Some of the services we provide are:

  1. One-on-one tutoring; individualized for each student's needs

  2. FUN Friday social skills classes

  3. Parent Social Hours

  4. Free Family FUN community outings

  5. In-Home/ Individualized Education Plan (IEP) consultations

  6. Teacher subscriptions of monthly differentiated/modified academic work


In order to provide scholarships and ongoing support for families and teachers, we rely on donations to sustain these important services!


Below are a few examples of where your donations go:

  • $25 covers the tuition for one student to attend a two hour social skills class

  • $50 covers a one-month subscription for a teacher to enroll in our differentiation/modification program for 5 pages of differentiated/modified work and one 15 minute monthly check-in

  • $100 covers two sessions of 1:1 tutoring, making the monthly cost only $90 for a family in need

  • $190 covers one month of 1:1 tutoring session (4 hours of 1:1 tutoring services)

  • $250 could cover one month of 12 hours of services (4 1:1 tutoring sessions and 4 two-hour social skills classes) or could help fund specific program items such as Quickbooks, Eversign, News2You curriculum, academic supplies and administrative costs


As a 501(c)(3), any donation over $250 is tax-exempt. If you would like to send a check donation, please send it to the following address:

FUNctional EDventures, 4001 Anderson Road P96, Nashville, TN 37217.
