Taking Care of Where We Live:
Brooklyn Heights and the Earth, too!
There is only one Village of Brooklyn Heights, Ohio! It's where we live and work and play.
There's only one Earth, too. There are a lot of ways that everyone from kids to grown-ups can help to keep our environment clean and healthy!
The Cuyahoga County Solid Waste District has a great website that you can visit to learn how to recycle ANYTHING! Learn about the things that you put in your recycle bin every day, where they go and how recycling helps everyone from the smallest insects to giant trees.

What is autism?
Autism affects how the brain works and might make it hard to talk, understand other people and learn new things.
How do you get autism?
You are born with autism just as some people are born
with brown hair and some people are born with freckles.
Scientists are trying to figure out exactly how autism
happens and how to best teach children with autism.
How do people with autism talk?
Many people with autism have a hard time using words and may even say the same word or sentence over and over. Some people don’t
talk, but instead use their hands, pictures or even an iPad.
Then, there are other people with autism who can talk just like you.
How should I act around someone with autism?
Great question, and there’s an easy answer! You should always
try to be a caring person. Act like you usually would. If you are not sure how to hang out with a kid with autism, maybe a grown-up could show you how to get his/her attention. Even if kids with autism act differently than you, they still have feelings and can care about you.
So just be yourself when you are with someone with autism. You may make a new friend!
The inspiration for this page came from Mayor Mike, who suggested that we post special items that would be of interest to children in the village. Thank you, Mayor Mike!
