Individuals with ASD prefer words and phrases as opposed to symbols and images. Words symbolizing the training and personal development taking place within are also displayed throughout the space.

Trees are a universal symbol for growth, which relates to the development and progress of em·power’s users. The sky peeking through the gaps of the trees represent the space’s circulation.
