Personally, I feel that as parents with children or young adult with autism and any other disorders, we are not looking at others to support us financially. What we are hoping for is for our own children to be able to take care of themselves as they grow older, and specially when we are gone.
These are a few local sites or social enterprise that supports children and or young adults with autism. I hope you will support them: (updated 5 Aug 2016)
- The Art Faculty by Pathlight – They sell products made by students of Pathlight School, Singapore’s first autism-focused school that offer a unique blend of mainstream curriculum and life skills. Each Doodlist and Artists receives royalties from the sale of their merchandise.
- An awesome news on one of the fellow artists from The Art Faculty ‘PM Lee’s wife White House purse designed by autistic youth‘
- Professor Brawn Cafe – are founded by parents and friends who want to make a difference to the special needs community and others who need a leg up in society.
