Autism is a poorly-understood neurological disorder that can impair an individual’s ability to engage in various social interactions. But little 5-year-old Iris Grace in the UK is an excellent example of the unexpected gifts that autism can also grant – her exceptional focus and attention to detail have helped her create incredibly beautiful paintings that many of her fans (and buyers) have likened to Monet’s works.
Little Iris is slowly learning to speak, whereas most children have already begun to speak at least a few words by age 2. Along with speech therapy, her parents gradually introduced her to painting, which is when they discovered her amazing talent.
“We have been encouraging Iris to paint to help with speech therapy, joint attention and turn taking,” her mother, Arabella Carter-Johnson, explains on her website. “Then we realised that she is actually really talented and has an incredible concentration span of around 2 hours each time she paints. Her autism has created a style of painting which I have never seen in a child of her age, she has an understanding of colours and how they interact with each other.”
Much better version of the same subject matter I posted earlier.
If you have any questions don't hesitate and ask! Suggestions? Go ahead! Requests? Also welcome. Also if you see me posting the 'send me stuff' kind of posts and want to send something but you're not sure if you should because we've never talked yet - I will be happy to see someone new in my inbox :)
Uh I changed the theme recently but I still haven't come up with a decent 'about me' description, I'll get to it one day... Maybe...
For now I'll only warn you I'm not too consistent in my blogging and I go through phases. Currently I'm posting mostly VIXX (which does not mean I like Infinite or other groups any less than before).
