Unique like a narwhal
was made with parents of Special Needs kids in mind! Half of the proceeds of each purchase gets donated directly to a local Early Interventionist who is creating an Early Learning Academy.
WHY IS THIS IMPORTANT?
Parents who work standard 9-5 jobs don’t always have the capability to take their disabled kids to different therapy locations during working hours. With this Early Learning Academy, all kids can be dropped off
(like daycare) but also get therapy!
"In this post, when I refer to the superhero narrative, I mean anything that compares autistic people to a superhero, suggests that autistic people have super powers or that autism itself is a super power. See the examples on the second slide.
I am just sharing my opinion as an autistic person as to why the superhero narrative is harmful however, I definitely do not police autistic people's use of language for themselves if they would like to describe their autism as a superhero etc.
"I am aware that when people use this phrase, they often think this is a compliment. They say this with the assumption that Autism is inherently bad a by saying we don't look Autistic, they are complimenting us. Although it can come from good intentions, the phrase can be harmful and to me, it feels like [it] is a product of the ablest society that we exist in.
ALRIGHTY! Over the years, I've been recommended many products that parents have seen been super helpful to their Autistic kids.
I wanted to put them all in 1 spot to be a great reference for others. I'll be updating this as I learn of more things so feel free to submit information you'd like to share!
Let’s talk ADULT PARENT FRIENDS. But I’m not talking just any parent friends.
I’m talking about parent friends of disabled kids.
I have been following (Jessie) on instagram fro a couple years, and was so pumped when (she) opened (her) shop and moved to illustrations full time. I appreciate the light you bring to the world.
It has been amazing to work with Jess! She is quick and kind and compassionate!
ABSOLUTELY FANTASTIC!! purchased our couples illustration around the Christmas holiday and it came out perfect! Do yourself a favor and get your favorite photo illustrated. You will definitely love it!!!
It's unique, it's trending, and if you take the time to research your purchase is going towards something more than just a custom illustration. Customer service is friendly and the communication to get you what you're looking for is on point. I highly recommend Momma Lips Draws and her services!
