“The Spectrum” – Autism Inspired Store

Welcome to “The Spectrum”, our Autism-Inspired Store!

April is Autism Acceptance Month!

“Formerly known” as Autism “Awareness” Month, the word “Acceptance” is now being more widely used globally to denote a “deliberate shift” in thinking and addressing autism by the larger “typical” population. “Awareness” is probably just the first step… “Acceptance” has a deeper connotation and meaning. “Embracement” next? We sure hope so!

Whatever the “jargon” used – one thing is for certain. People on the spectrum, especially younger children – are now being more “recognized” as awareness and understanding of autism becomes more widespread. And to celebrate this, we at E.S.A are mighty pleased to bring forward the works and creations of various children on the spectrum through hand-crafted merchandise and collectibles showcasing their raw talent and creativity.

Profits from the purchase of these items will go directly to the child artists / creators. Your support will directly help them boost their self-confidence and self esteem, while giving them the opportunity to earn an income as they continue their journey towards eventual independence 

This is not only the hope of parents, but also these children themselves.
