In April, we published artwork by autistic illustrator and psychotherapist, Kate Jones Illustration, that featured a silhouette of messages that would promote genuine autistic acceptance. It was a counter to messaging like “look me in the eye,” “you’re embarrassing me,” “quiet hands,” and “be yourself— but not like that.”
These positive affirmations demonstrate how to move beyond awareness and to true acceptance. While it was created with the specific intention of accepting autistic ways of being, these messages promote accepting anyone who is different to be their authentic self and not to lose their identity trying to assimilate into the status quo.
Available in a variety of styles, adult sizes, and youth sizes.
This fundraiser is hosted by Bonfire, and 100% of proceeds go to NeuroClastic’s nonprofit.
