Air Jordan 23s with symptoms ranging from mild to severe

April is Autism Awareness Month.

Did you know that there is no known cause for autism? A neurological disorder Air Jordan 23s that affects the normal functioning of the brain, it is the fastest growing developmental disability affecting 1 in 88 children and 1 in 54 boys.

Since autism is a spectrum disorder, with symptoms ranging from mild to severe, each individual with autism is unique. Many of those on the autism spectrum have exceptional abilities in visual skills, music and academic Air Jordan 2s skills. I learned this fact firsthand many of the children I know who been diagnosed with autism are exceptionally gifted in art.

I have a dear friend who has Jordan Retro 2 twin boys who were diagnosed at an early age (they are in their late teens now) and they have been drawing and illustrating their own stories and theater productions since they were around eight years old. Their artwork is mind blowing.

What always touches me about parents with autistic children is their unconditional love and their high level of dedication and advocacy for their children. We all have unconditional love for our children, but how much Air Jordan DMP more so when they have special needs?

It very important that I teach my children about autism and how to interact with them. In an effort to cultivate sensitivity, we had conversations about how the brain of an autistic person works in a different way, but that doesn make them or any of the many adjectives kids can use when describing people who are different. In order to understand that, I firmly believe the first step is awareness.

I was recently commissioned to paint a pair of TOMS shoes for Lisa Quinones Fontanez from Autism Wonderland, a blog that chronicles their journey through autism after her son Norrin was diagnosed at the age of two and a half (he five Air Jordan 14s now).

They are such happy, fun shoes, don you think? Help spread awareness this April.

Lisa lives in the Bronx so we decided to go with graffiti style letters as well as the puzzle piece icon.
